What’s new?

Work on other projects has left me no time lately to update Deskbound Traveller, so I’m grateful for the latest Genius Loci newsletter from Jeremy Bassetti, editor of Travel Writing World. If you haven’t signed up for it already, you can do so on his personal website or on Travel Writing World

  Last night, I see from Twitter, prize-winners in the British Guild of Travel Writers’ awards included Emma Thomson, who was named travel writer of the year; Tharik Hussain, whose Minarets in the Mountains: a Journey into Muslim Europe was travel narrative book of the year; and Simon Parker, travel broadcaster of the year.

  Recent contributors to the “Read your way through…” series of literary guides to cities, published in The New York Times, include Elif Shafak on Istanbul, Bernardine Evaristo on London and Pajtim Statovci on Helsinki.
