Before you retire, READ THIS:


Are you a writer? Would you like to be a writer?

Do you have an adventure you’d like to share with our readers?

We welcome your travel stories from home and around the world.

You don’t have to be a "professional writer" to submit your stories. A breezy, letter-home-to-your-best-friend approach suits us just fine, with a few facts thrown in, of course. 

A good way to structure your story is to be sure you answer the 5 W’s: Who, What, When, Where, Why?


We’re looking for personal experiences in more of an essay format, rather than "travel article" format. We like quotes from named people who traveled with you. We like your personal observations, how you felt about the place, what you ate, your most embarrassing moment, etc. We like to see the facts interspersed with that.

Think about other travel essays you're read to get a better picture of what we're looking for. These essays usually appear in travel anthologies, rather than travel magazines. 


500 to 1,200 words (this is a guideline; it’s okay if your story runs a bit over)


Save your photos in jpg format. Photos should be 100-300kb in size. We’d like to see you in at least one of the pictures. Please be sure your photos are in focus. We want you to look as good as possible!

Photos are not absolutely necessary to have your story published, but we all like to look at pictures. 

One photo is okay if that’s all you have, and please, no more than ten.


Please contact me using the following simple form and tell me the title and brief synopsis of your story and how many photos you have.

We can’t offer monetary compensation at this time, just editorial credit and the glory of seeing your name “in print.”

Thanks so much for sharing with your fellow readers at Adventuress Travel Magazine.

Editor reserves the right to shorten or otherwise edit your piece to fit our format.
