Linda Watanabe McFerrin is a travel writer, novelist, poet, and contributor to many newspapers, magazines and anthologies. Here we discuss some of the more subtle aspects of travel writing: crossing boundaries, the idea of place as a character, why we should not try to fit in when we travel, and how to get risk onto the page.

McFerrin’s latest book, Navigating the Divide, from Alan Squire Publishing’s “Legacy Series” of writers with cross-genre works, is a Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist.
