Travelers’ Tales Awards

05 Mar
I’m so, so excited! Just heard from Travelers’ Tales that my writing won 3 awards — each was an essay adapted from my book. So rewarding to get some validation that I should continue to write…
Here’s the beginning of the press release my publicist sent out:
 
BETHESDA, MD, March 5, 2016 — Marianne C. Bohr has won honors in three categories of the Tenth Annual Solas Awards. Awards were just announced by the contest sponsor and travel writing publisher, Travelers’ Tales. More than 200 entries in 21 categories competed to win in this year’s contest, honoring excellence in travel writing. Bohr won awards for three travel stories.
 
“A Wide-Eyed Schoolgirl” won a Silver Award in the Travel and Transformation category for the best story about the inner journey or pilgrimage.
 
“The Tour du Mont Blanc” won a Silver Award in the Travel and Sports category for her account of a seven-day, 105-mile hike on the famous trek along Mont Blanc Massif.
 
“The Marrakesh Express” won Honorable Mention for a story about traveling Morocco by train.
