...wait. What?

How you can help me write travel, nature, and leadership stories.

I invest a lot of time and energy writing to advocate local community, the environment, and leadership. Through my posts, pictures, videos, and podcasts people find a good story, personal direction, and a way to escape. Most of my content is available for free at www.aNovelEcho.com and in native format across social media: especially Facebook and Instagram.

My name is Jamie Lewis Hedges. I've been an anthropologist and environmental educator since 1999, a leadership consultant since 2015. I've been traveling all my life. In 2016 alone we traveled 40,000+ miles, crossing 37 state lines. During the summer of 2017 we lived in Kenya. We've been to Vietnam, Columbia, and other nations. I’ve led groups in remote areas of the US and Sub-Saharan Africa. I've met so many amazing places, people, and groups who living important lives. Help me tell the stories.

...maybe. What's in it for me?

There's so much more to tell.

I know a guy, nearing retirement, shuffled to a corner at work and lost in life. But he has lived a life of adventure and mentorship that is going uncelebrated. And there's this nonprofit I visited, that's slowly falling apart from the inside out. But it's the most relevant organization to a history and natural area that would be gone without it.

I want to do more for people and places like these!

Stories inspire. Experiences become stories. With your support, I could spend more time and effort engaging this need.
