Carolyne Lee is a writer, teacher, and researcher who tries to spend every spare moment in France. In her other life she lectures in the School of Culture and Communication at the University of Melbourne. She has written for newspapers, books, e-zines, educational curricula, and scholarly journals. She has been teaching writing for more decades than she’s prepared to admit, and in that time has seen many of her students break into print (and pixels), gain good jobs in the media or in other organisations, and even become teachers themselves. Her books are Who’d be a Mother? (co-edited, Angus & Robertson, 1990), Power Prose: Writing Skills for the Media Age (Hardie Grant, 2004), and Word Bytes: Writing in the Information Society (Melbourne University Press, to be published July 2009).

    Dear Carolyne,

    My name is Marta and I´m a travel writer based in London. I would like to contribute to Escapetoparis with an article called “5 Dishes to discover the soul of Paris”.

    The article offers information about five areas in Paris and suggests the best dishes to taste to get the real soul of each one. I think it could be very interesting for readers as it shows a non-touristic image of the city.

    Would you be interested in publishing it? In that case I´d be happy to send it to you for review.

    I look forward to hearing from you,

    Hello. If you send me the article via I will review it and let you know if I can use it as a guest post. Carolyne.
