The Wherever Café is created especially for:
- Fiction writers who want to travel.
- Travelers who want to write fiction.
This site isn’t just about travel writing. It’s about using your own experience to create something meaningful. Toward those ends we are developing lessons, worksheets, blogs and field notes that help you put your life on paper.
If you want to publish, that’s great. This will help you develop something striking that punches readers (and editors) in the heart, something that differentiates you.
If you don’t want to publish, that’s great. This will help you grasp the important moments of your life and create something lasting that goes much deeper than an anecdote.
I’m a firm believer in the phrase “not all who wander are lost,” however that doesn’t mean there’s a road to take you where you want to go. Yet, over time, through persistence, a path emerges and you find the way to push your boundaries and reach your goals. The Wherever Café is here to offer companionship and inspiration wherever you go.
