About The Publication:

Founded in 1977 by journalist/professor/study abroad advisor Dr. Clay Hubbs as an educational travel magazine. Now our webzine, “TAzine,” is the only online periodical for work, volunteering, study, educational & responsible travel, and living overseas. “We publish practical information-filled stories about these subjects, no travel journals, no cruise ship or U.S. destination pieces. We focus on the people, and responsible immersion into another culture, and not bringing your own culture with you.” Website receives up to 8 million visitors yearly; 60% of audience is U.S; almost all college and post-graduates.

“Don’t send us a journal about your trip. It’s about the reader’s trips. Write your piece to be practical yet inspirational for fellow passionate and educated travelers, and not available in every guidebook. Don’t send us stories about standard tourist destinations, cruise ships, or the U.S. Write your piece about the people of other cultures. Well-researched sidebars full of practical resources which others can use are critical. Browse some of the thousands of current and archived articles on the website before you submit, please.”
