Abby Rapoport is publisher and co-founder of the award-winning Stranger’s Guide, a unique travel publication for the globally connected age that encompasses print guides and newsletters along with curated products and partnerships.
In an effort to combat stereotypes and encourage global awareness, more than half of the writers featured in Stranger’s Guide come from the location being covered. Writers are often world-renowned names - such as Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka - and often appear in the Best American Travel Writing anthologies.
Stranger’s Guide uses “arresting photography, luminous essays, and fascinating facts and figures” to cover a diverse array of content, from lifestyle pieces to critical assessments of the major issues affecting a place. Its unique style landed it a nomination for the National Magazine Award in General Excellence.
Before founding Stranger’s Guide, Abby Rapoport was publisher of the Texas Observer and previously worked as a political reporter for the Texas Tribune, the Texas Observer, and The American Prospect, where she covered Texas politics.
