Cycladian Rhythm and Lowell Thomas gold

The Society of American Travel Writers announced its annual Lowell Thomas Award winners late last week, and I was happy to learn that “Cycladian Rhythm,” my Greek sailing story from the Spring 2006 issue of Outside Traveler, won top honors in the Marine Travel category.

Of my Cycladian tale, the judges wrote:

This author regales the readers with Greek myth, geographic insights into the archipelago and descriptive language while reporting on a sailing vacation through the Cyclades. Readers not only feel the wind and water but also can easily understand the intricacies of marine travel.

Elsewhere in the contest, World Hum won a well-deserved gold in the Internet Publications category — its first, after several years as a runner-up.
