So, what is Truckin'?

I created this site in 2002 out of sheer frustration. I was sick and tired of seeing submission after submission of mine shot down from various e-zines and other literary publications. I decided to start my own place on the blogosphere where I would publish all of my short stories and travel essays in addition to sharing my friends' travel stories. Thus, Truckin' was born and once a month new stories are added to the archives.

Over the last two years this idea has evolved into something extraordinary because a close knit community of creative minds have found themselves. At one point I was the only person writing stories and we had less than ten readers. Today, Truckin' is read on seven continents and features writers from all over the world. The majority of Truckin' writers do not write for a living. They have regular day jobs and come from all walks of life. All of the writers write for free and I am proud to say that many of them are close friends. I like to think that Truckin' is like your corner bar of blogzines; you'll find an eclectic mix of stories and characters and discover that some are oddly familiar.
