About Scrawl Place

Scrawl Place is part visitor’s guide, part travelogue, part literary journal. It’s meant for readers who prefer Bashō to Lonely Planet.


Scrawl Place is edited by Andy Brown, full-time freelance writer and writing coach. After earning an MFA in Creative Writing, Andy started his career as a journalist and editor.  Determined to learn all aspects of the publishing industry, he even sold advertising. After honing his sales skills, Andy combined his experiences to become a successful publisher, setting strategy and managing sales, editorial, marketing and production staff for several organizations. In 2014, Andy realized a lifelong dream to work for himself, doing what he loves most – writing and wandering.
