DescriptionBrooklyn-based editor and publisher Mary D’Ambrosio has taught a graduate level summer travel writing course at New York University for the past decade. A couple of years ago she noticed something about her students’ work: she liked it better than the usual travel magazine fare. “They weren’t going to write ‘Ten Hot Hotels in Rome’” she says. “They were going to write some sort of cultural story about what made Rome tick.”
