ABOUT ME

Featured story

Chicago-based freelancer, outdoor lover, ukulele player and travel obsessive, I, Elaine Glusac, write primarily about travel and food. I practice the Zen of fishing, can order a beer in 12 languages, own a tractor, hoard snowshoes and hold the title of Junior Ranger at Glacier Bay National Park. I speak passable Spanish, French and Italian, all of which improve after a glass of wine. Other than writing well and maintaining a sometimes annoying level of curiosity, my prime professional qualification is being an expert navigator and map reader. I have two wholly unrelated-to-journalism degrees from the Univerity of Michigan (Go Blue!)

 

I write frequently for major publications including the New York Times and National Geographic Traveler. I am a contributing editor at Virtuoso Life, a travel columnist for Indulge magazine published by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and often write a business travel column in Entrepreneur.

 

I won a silver Lowell Thomas Award from the Society of American Travel Writers in 2013 for "Where Time Stood Still," a story on Myanmar for Private Clubs magazine. The judges called it, "outstanding writing, combining history, culture and sightseeing."

 

I have won several first places prizes in the annual writing competition held by the North American Travel Journalists Association, including a gold for "Treasure Islands," the Nov. 2012 cover story of Budget Travel, and still one of my favorite stories.
