Children as Chattel

InfoChange India has published another of my articles. This one, titled Children as Chattel, is about child trafficking and child slavery.

You can read the article here.

Currently I am in Prague at a writing program and nonfiction manuscript workshop, revising and editing the Weight of Silence manuscript. The workshop is incredible, the professors and other writers smart and gifted, and I expect big things from the month-long program.

Thank you for your support!

About Shelley Seale

I'm Shelley, a journeyer and learner of the world, freelance journalist and author, yoga chick and dog lover. I pound the keyboard from home barefoot every day, and while my boss is demanding she also occasionally lets me have the early afternoon cocktail. I think not going into an office or collecting corporate paychecks are very good ideas, though not always profitable. I have written for National Geographic, USA Today, The Guardian, Texas Monthly and CNN, among others. Neither the New York Times nor Johnny Depp have answered my letters yet. I love yoga, indie movies, wine, and books, though not necessarily in that order. I believe in karma. Mean people suck. If I could have any dream job I would like to be a superhero. I have performed a catch on the flying trapeze, boarded down a live volcano and was once robbed by a monkey in Nepal. But, I don't know how to whistle. My mantra is "travel with a purpose."
