Hostel Adventure Program welcomes San Francisco's Latchkey Kids

Some San Francisco kids have never been out of their inner-city neighborhoods, let alone on a beach. This summer, a pilot partnership between the City of San Francisco's Latchkey Program and the Hostel Adventure Program of HI-USA Golden Gate Council brought 200 urban youth out of the noise and concrete of the city to the rolling hills and dramatic coastline of the Marin Headlands for a day of environmental education.

Travelers' Tales series seeks stories for publication

The Travelers' Tales series of anthologies is seeking submissions for upcoming titles. The publisher is looking for personal, nonfiction stories and anecdotes--funny, illuminating, adventurous, frightening, or grim. Stories should "reflect that unique alchemy that occurs when you enter unfamiliar territory and begin to see the world differently as a result." Stories that have already been published, including book excerpts, are welcome, and Travelers' Tales does not restrict the authors' rights in any way to have their stories reprinted elsewhere. Authors of accepted essays receive a $100 honorarium plus a copy of the book.
