Matthew Ferrence in Best American Travel Writing 2018

The Gettysburg Review is thrilled to announce that Matthew Ferrence's essay "The Foxes of Prince Edward Island" will be published in Best American Travel Writing 2018. His piece first appeared in our Spring 2017 issue.  Cheryl Strayed is this year's guest editor, and we couldn't be happier with her selection. The anthology will be published in October and is available for preorder.

"Everyone travels for different reasons, but whatever those reasons are, one thing is certain: they come back with stories. Each year, the best of those stories are collected in The Best American Travel Writing, curated by one of the top writers in the field, and each year they 'open a window onto the strange, seedy, and beautiful world, offering readers glimpses into places that many will never see or experience except through the eyes and words of these writers' (Kirkus). This far-ranging collection of top notch travel writing is, quite simply, the genre’s gold standard."
