Hi Scott, Paul here from International Living…I read that last piece you did for us and thought it was really good, so I’m wondering if you’d like to contribute to a story …

Paul, Editor, International Living


I loved your article about traveling with the kids! (I have three myself.) I was wondering if you’d be interested in writing another one for me…

This is fantastic! It turned out so well. Thank you for this and for getting it over to me so quickly. I will let you know soon if I have any questions at all.

Kat, Editor, The Right Way to Travel


Thank you so much, Scott–and for turning this piece around so quickly. It’s been fun to work with you, too. 🙂 Do stay in touch–I’d love to see/read about where you travel to in the future…

While I have you, I wonder if you would be interested in writing another piece for me? I was thinking about a piece on how travel writing, and press trips, allow you to travel more with your kids.

Erica, Editor, The Right Way to Travel


As Content Editor for MilesGeek.com, I find that Scott Kendall embodies what I look for in a travel writer. From his concise pitches with a clear focus to his finished article, Scott is professional and dependable. He brings locations to life with his descriptive writing supported by facts. Also bringing his destinations to life is his well thought out inclusion of photos that illustrate the story. MilesGeek is delighted to be included as an outlet for Scott’s writing.

… Fredericksburg is posted. Thank you for submissions that are easy to work with, edit and post! Another great article by you.  Thank you.

Other Comments From Visitor Bureaus, Businesses, Editors and Readers

Scott Kendall took us to Georgetown (no, not D.C., but Texas) for his story in MilesGeek.com, then shared his amazing dining experience at a small café in Rome’s magnificent Piazza Navona for TheYums.com. Congrats to Scott for also being selected as a “Mover and Shaker” in TravMedia.

Noreen, The Travel Writers’ Cafe, Great Escape Publishing


Very nicely done!  I will forward the article to everyone included in it. Thanks again.
