Frayed Passport Quarterly: Travel Prose by Travel Pros

This quarterly journal features stories from abroad, tips to help you travel to your fullest, and writing, publishing, and marketing advice for aspiring travel writers and bloggers. Our April 2013 edition and onward will exclusively feature the very best travel essays and stories chosen by our team. 
Specifically, we're looking for personal stories and essays, whether they're from novice or frequent travelers. We're not looking for "how-to" or "top 10" articles, but rather travel writing our readers can relate to, and that may even inspire them. Most essays are between 800 and 1200 words, though there's no hard and fast word limit for entries.

East Jasmine Review is a new electronic literary magazine. 
We accept fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction (travel), articles, and reviews. 

Our goal: We are looking to build an online community and audience. We want to earn enough revenue to begin paying our writers, so please help us grow!

As a contributor to the East Jasmine Review, you will be given the electronic publication in .epub, .mobi, and .pdf to view your work. Please refrain from sharing your copy with others. 
Remember, we want to be able to pay you!

For our friends at Novel Travelist: We primarily deal with stories for creative nonfiction. 
Specifically with travel pieces, we are looking for the story in the experience. 
Our question is this: why should this story of my travel be shared with others?
