Call for Contributions for Meridian’s Issue #2

Do you have a unique food-related story you want to share with the world? Do you have a dish that is inextricably linked to a story? An authentic recipe that evokes a particular memory every time you prepare it? Or perhaps the dish has a fascinating pedigree – a lineage that reflects your family’s history and culture?

Meridian is looking for contributions from talented storytellers and passionate cooks for the second issue of our digital magazine. We want to hear your fascinating stories behind those unforgettable recipes. They will be

published in our magazine’s digital application for tablets and e-readers.

(Find our Cs group here:http://www.couchsurfing.org/group.html?gid=43131)

What we don't want are clichéd or travel guide-style stories. We aim to promote cross-cultural exchanges and
storytellers around the world using new media. For this issue, we are using food and memory to enter new worlds and new cultures.

Each story must have an accompanying step-by-step recipe. Your story can be told through text, images, audio and/or video mediums.


Let your creativity flow with any combination of multimedia formats. Feel free to explore how these mediums can best

tell your story. Consider how you can tell your story perhaps with text and then a supplement of video or picture slideshow showing how the dish is cooked. Or consider narrating your story with an audio recording and then supplementing that with video or illustrations.

Contributors’ honorarium

As a not-for-profit organization, Meridian offers an honorarium of 50 euros if your story is published in the
magazine’s app.

In the future Meridian would like to consider publishing a print cookbook based on this magazine issue. If your
contribution is selected for the print cookbook, you will receive fair royalties based on the print sales (to be
specified at a later point).
