Shepherdstown, West Virginia travel story in Southern Living

SL_May2014cover

Pick up a copy of Southern Living’s May issue to read my travel story on Shepherdstown, West Virginia, a charming little town an hour-and-a-half drive from Washington, D.C. My story highlights the cool places to shop and tasty places to eat in the little town of 1,700 people. Also in this issue, my friend and fellow journalist Kristin Luna wrote a wonderful travel piece on Louisville, Kentucky’s East Market District. It’s always a treat to share some ink with writers you admire. Happy reading!

Virginia travel stories in Southern Living

southern living april 2014 coverHey friends,

I wrote a travel story on Lynchburg, Virginia, that is published in the April issue of Southern Living. Lynchburg always will have a special place in my heart. After leaving Colorado, I lived in Lynchburg for about two years and worked at the town’s newspaper as a page designer and copy editor. When I moved there I was lost and confused and ended up finding myself and a tribe of people I have come to love. So, having this travel story published means very, very much to me. Be sure to grab a copy or read the story here. My story is only printed in the MVA travel zones, which are distributed in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia.

Also, back in November Southern Living published a travel story I wrote on where to shop in Charlottesville, Virginia, on their website. Read that story here.

I have a few other travel pieces I wrote for Southern Living that I’m hoping to see in print soon. Stay tuned!

Cheers, marissa
