You have kept a journal of your travels and some of those photographs are quite good. What's next? Share your information! Several newspapers, magazines and Internet websites depend on travel writers to provide content for their publications. This listing of submission guidelines is presented without regard for a writer's experience. Therefore, we recommend a thorough review of individual websites and magazines to determine the types of contributions that they are looking for and whether or not you are qualified to submit your work. Most internet websites do not pay for contributions but may serve to establish your credentials. This list is by no means complete so we welcome any suggestions to improve this page.
