Two dozen of the most lively, critical and thought-provoking travel writers have been asked to share a cherished meeting, a remembered conversation. The result is Meetings - each will be a story of a remarkable meeting, one which has enriched the writer. Some will be funny. Others profound. This is travel writing with soul. No new maps have been drawn, no rare artefacts procured, no lost cities rediscovered. Nor have fridges or film-crews been dragged around the globe to help cook up a tale. We are looking to get an equally starry cast of writers as the Ox-Tales series and will be looking to commission the likes of Michael Palin, Bill Bryson, Redmond O'Hanlon, Michael Oondatje, William Dalrymple, Chris Stewart and Sara Wheeler.
