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" or "round-up" 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 (you can find lots of them on amazon), rather than travel magazines.
Here are some content ideas for you:
- What compelled you to visit this destination?
- What did you like best about it?
- What was the weather like?
- What challenges (personal or otherwise) did you face while you were there?
- How did you handle them?
- Who was the most interesting character you met there?
STORIES we are particularly interested in right now are:
- Foreign culinary adventures, including photos and recipes
- Spas you visited and loved
- Activity Adventures - maybe hiking, kayaking, cycling, exploring, ballooning, once in a lifetime adventures! Sky-diving?!
TIP: The more amusing or personal your story, the more we’ll like it!
800 to 1,500 words (this is a guideline; it’s okay if your story runs a bit over)
Save your photos in .png or .jpg format. Photos should be 100-300kb in size.
We’d like to see you in at least one of the pictures, perhaps doing something with locals or your travel companion(s).
Please be sure your photos are in focus. We want you to look as good as possible!
We like to see anywhere from 5 to 10 photos.
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 then contact you to forward the full article, if suitable, for inclusion in the magazine!
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.
