Hi! Thank you for visiting my site. I left my longtime position as Senior Editor of National Geographic Travel Publishing in 2015 to go full-time freelance. I have published hundreds of travel stories and blog posts, plus four books. I have accompanied National Geographic Expedition tours to Italy and France as the NatGeo Expert and I teach travel writing both in person and online. And I'm always planning my next trip! On these pages you can find links to my travel writing, my editing services, and my upcoming classes. Take a look and feel free to contact me (barbaranoekennedy@gmail.com). Thanks! ~ Barbara Noe Kennedy
