Do you enjoy writing about travel?

We love to feature new & aspiring travel writers who can delight and entertain our readers. We currently need support developing family-centric travel content to engage kids (and sometimes parents) in fun and innovative ways.  If you are a writer who loves to travel, this could be the perfect fit for you—turn your own passion into an inspiring story for our readers!

We are currently accepting submissions in the following categories:

  • Travelnitch Eats: Whether it’s a new take on an old world recipe or a deep dive into a city’s best eateries, this is for foodies—young and old—who live (and travel) to eat.
  • Travel Crafts: We love sharing hands-on activities that get kids (and sometimes whole families) excited about travel.
  • Story Guides: Our kid-friendly guides share the fun of destinations near and far, including quirky sights & exotic excursions to help families build the ultimate travel wishlist!
  • Strange and Spooky: These stories introduce young readers to strange and spooky phenomenon from around the world. From historical legends to natural phenomenon, if it’s weird or bone-chilling we want to write about it.
  • Travelnitch Outdoors: A passion for travel can stem from a love of the outdoors. Share your favorite family-friendly campsites, hiking trails, and outdoor activities to help families feel more connected to mother nature.

Above all else, your story must contain elements of real-world travel. Our goal is to inspire and educate young readers by sharing the wonders of this world in which we all live. If your content pays no mind to our mission, we will not publish it.

Guidelines for Getting Started

  1. Choose a topic that interests you. Even the best writers have difficulty crafting compelling content when they dislike the subject matter.
  2. Keep it short and sweet. Paragraphs should never be more than 3-4 sentences. Use headers to break up long text and make it easy for readers to follow along.
  3. Avoid repetition. Nobody likes a broken record. If you’ve said it once, that’s enough. Move on.
  4. Do your research. Ask a Subject Matter Expert or try a simple Google Search. You don’t have all the answers.
  5. Always fact check your work. Don’t spread fake news, and use tools available to you for grammar and spelling.

Do We Still Have Your Attention?

We always aim to preserve the integrity of the original manuscript. However, by submitting your short story, you agree to any and all revisions we deem necessary for the publication of your work.

If accepted, your story will be shared widely across all of our social channels, with an author’s bio and optional link to your own website.

Note: We do occasionally accept promotional content that fits within our Storyteller’s Spotlight framework. However, if you are looking to market your product or service, consider a sponsored post.

We deliver new and exciting experiences to encourage dialogue and provoke curiosity.

Travel plays such an important role in our lives. It has the ability to change us for the better. It’s an experiential education that teaches us how to feel, think, act, and react in positive ways. Travel fosters creativity, builds confidence, and teaches us all to be more tolerant. My own kids benefit from travel every time we hit the open road. No amount of money can buy those life lessons.
