    There are a couple of other great places for compelling stories. This list is by no means exhaustive, but a few that I really like are:

    1.Both Vewd (http://vewd.org/)and Blue Eyes (http://www.blueeyesmagazine.com/) showcase documentary photography and multimedia pieces.

    2.InTheFray (http://www.inthefray.org) publishes images and essays that “explore global issues and engage readers with personal perspectives and critical analysis.”

    3.Pology Magazine (http://www.pology.com/) showcases stories about cultural immersion and off-the-beaten-path travel narratives.
