Letters of Assignment - Press Release
We can provide you with a Letter of Assignment from Swift House Press if you are planning to write an article about a particular establishment or attraction. This will usually give you a discounted or complimentary stay or, for example, a treatment at a Spa.
We can issue you with the letter to introduce you, and the manager will then confirm what deal he or she can offer in return for a fair review of the business.
Contact me for further details about the benefits you could receive.
And don't be shy - every travel story has it's own interesting angle, from things that went wrong to finding unexpected highlights.
We welcome your travel stories from home and around the world, and we publish them as feature articles. It doesn't have to be a grand World travel adventure; we enjoy hearing about stories about a road trip from your own neighborhood in the United States - or anywhere else - too! An online magazine is the BEST WAY to get your story published.
Your travel story does NOT have to be recent - ALL travel tales are interesting. The best way to send us your story idea is to simply complete the form at the bottom of the page, or Contact Me direct to find out what you can expect in return!
Write for us!
If you have had some interesting travel experiences, please tell us about them. We'd love to hear about your travel destinations and experiences. Please send your story (or simply an enquiry) to us at our contact page, with "Travel Story" in the subject line. Thank you!
You don’t have to be a professional writer to send us your stories. A breezy, letter-home-to-your-best-friend approach suits us just fine, with a few facts thrown in, of course. Just pretend you are telling a friend about your trip, and write in a familiar first person fashion - ie. using "I" and "we" in the story.
A good way to structure your story is to think about the famous 5 W’s from journalism: Who, What, When, Where, Why? In other words, Who is the story about? What did they do? When did they do it? Where did they do it? And last, Why did they do it?
For example, "David took a flight in May to Paris, to see the Eiffel Tower". That's the 5 W's in one sentence. Of course, in a travel story you can make each "W" a whole section!
BUT DO NOT WORRY about your spelling, grammar, style or punctuation. We have a professional proofreader and copyeditor who can correct any errors, and tidy things up if needed. You can see more about this HERE.
We’re looking for personal experiences in any format that would be of interest to our readers. The article must be original content, not published anywhere else online or in a print magazine. These must be unique travel articles.
the body of the article, we like to see 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.
Here are some submission guidelines for you:
And don't forget the author's bio at the end of your article!
