Editors, are you still open to pieces on virtual offerings?
Lydia Schrandt
45:56
Thanks for the question Michele!
Anne Roderique-Jones

I definitely want to know more on this. It makes sense to speak to WY or open spaces, but how do you speak to travel outside of US and large US cities. If/when you travel internationally, how do you safely promote that and have you come across travel shaming?
Lydia Schrandt

Thanks Anne!

I feel for you Sarah. Figures the day you have a webinar is the day someone needs to use jackhammers right outside your office… LOL.
Janine Clements

Many countries governments are pushing to encourage people to travel there, pushing long term visa etc, but the actual communities don’t want people to come. How can you address that?
Allison Tibaldi
55:55
Like many freelance journalists, I get my best story angles when a press trip unfolds naturally. I don’t confirm coverage before a trip. Does anyone have any thoughts on if post COVID-19 press trips will be more likely to require confirmed assignments? Thank you for this super informative panel discussion!
Amy Sherman
56:12
But by promoting “off the beaten path” don’t you make them no longer safe?
Karthika Gupta
56:53
And to add to Amy’s comment…not all the off the beaten path are able to sustain heavy foot traffic…so are we doing more harm than good?

Also how does someone know that your writing is inspiration and not just service journalism?
Lydia Schrandt
59:10
Thanks for all the questions! We’ll get to as many of them as possible

Re Allison's comment, my best coverage (quality and number of publications)was when I didn't have confirmed coverage. A track record should count!
Lauren Mowery

We were in Bar Harbor a week ago. It was crowded and I can't even imagine how it would be with cruise ships there. I also found Maine as a whole, served as a benchmak for how other states could open tourism and hospitality with responsible risk built in.

Are you accepting pitches at this time?

hi, I’m a freelance writer based in Spain. Are editors still looking at stories from Europe and, if so, would you potentially consider any particular type of story?
Miguel Gongora
01:07:51
Miguel Gongora from Evolution Treks Peru. Would you guys consider approaching the issue of travel after convid from the point of view of the players on the ground? Meaning, the workers, the park rangers, tour guides, cooks, artisans, etc. I think that not seeing the new travel industry from their perspective is doing the same thing, just rebranded.

Must run all. Great panel! Thanks to all the speakers and organizers. Off to a 2.5-hour DEI training that I’m pretty psyched about. Be well!
Cathleen Decker

Appreciate the frank discussion. Running for a 2, but thank you editors, SATW and friends.
Tina Coleman

Have to run. Thanks so much! This has been great.

FAMS: In Asheville, N.C. we are not planning group trips. However, we are working with writers on an individual basis with travel safety for all in mind. A confirmed assignment isn't required. We do have a waiver. media@exploreasheville.com

I’m wondering whether destinations will have budgets for media trips.

Comment on how the pandemic has changed the power and role of influencers
Melanie Haiken

Following on what Rachel, said, I’m wondering how publications and fellow freelancers are handling social media shaming. Locals can react with feeling when their natural beauties are shared and they don’t want that attention.
