Useful Sites fo Travel Writers
More to come; send in yours: sreetips@sree.net

Many of these sites were collected at the 2001 convention of the Society of American Travel Writers, at which I presented my "Smarter Surfing: Better Use of Your Web Time" workshop. Attendees made suggestions as I took them down and "published" them immediately onto my Smarter Surfing links.

Many thanks to freelance writer Nichole Bernier for sending in several suggestions from Boston.
