Writing Submissions

We are looking for well-written, intelligent, and colorful pieces that approach the subject of travel by looking at culture and adventure. Some general questions you might ask yourself when writing an article for Travel Outward are the following. What makes this place/adventure unique? How have cultural elements–like food, the arts, history, or religion–shaped this community? Why would someone want to come here?

Please email your submissions to Travel Outward. Include a short bio and attach your story in Microsoft Word or rich-text format. Accompanying travel photographs are encouraged (JPEG format is preferred). We do not accept submissions via traditional mail.

Most feature articles are between 1,500 and 2,500 words. If accepted, longer articles might be split into multiple parts. We will occasionally publish shorter non feature stories that run upward of 1,000 words, and we’re currently accepting submissions for our “Destinations” section. Please familiarize yourself with the content on this site before submitting work for publication.

IMPORTANT: Please indicate in your email that you have read and agree with the terms and conditions below. Submissions without this acknowledgment cannot be reviewed. Also, place the word “submission” in the subject line of your email–due to the growing threat of computer viruses, we will not open files unless we are sure of their reliability.

Photo Submissions

Travel Outward publishes photos and captions in our “Photography” section. These images should attempt give a sense of the cultural identity of a place and/or speak to the uniqueness of the subject. We’re looking for photo submissions that tell a story. Please submit only the best of what you have.

Please email 5-10 images in JPEG format to Travel Outward. Captions may be placed in the body of your email or attached in a Microsoft Word or rich-text file. Please label each caption with the corresponding photo-file name to avoid confusion.

We currently do not have the resources to pay for contributions (either writing or photography), but we can provide a venue for you to tell a great story, get your name in print, and help in your pursuit of a successful writing and/or photography career. We will provide a short bio for all contributors and are happy to include relevant links.

For reasons of copyright liability and expense, we cannot accept any material for publication that is not owned outright by its creator.

We are few, and you are many… Due to the large number of submissions, we will only be able to reply to those whose articles and photographs have been accepted for publication. If you do not hear from us within 10 weeks of submitting your work, please assume that it has not been accepted for publication on TravelOutward.com. We encourage you to submit new articles as they are completed, and we look forward to seeing your work.
