I hope this message finds you well!
My name is Devi and I'm a poet, touring cyclist, and storyteller from Boston, USA, currently making my way around the world (mostly by bicycle) to collect stories from people I meet about water
and climate change.
I'm blogging about the trip at www.onebikeoneyear.wordpress.com
and was recently interviewed over at Radio New Zealand

At the moment I am cycling the south island of New Zealand
. I just found out that I'm going to be a Writer in Residence at Montsalvat (just outside Melbourne) from May 19-July 6 this year.
I am looking for work
on a boat
in exchange for a passage
to Melbourne (or other locations in NZ/Australia -- I can be flexible). I can leave at any time in early May.
I can assure you that I am a hard worker. I am no stranger to long days of cycling, and I rowed for four years on the Harvard varsity lightweight rowing team. I love water
, am a fast learner, and take instructions well.
I am committed to reducing my carbon footprint, though I am unable at this time to pay the full fee for the passage
Let me know what might be possible. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
