So, You Want To Be A Travel Writer?

DSC 0133

I know that a lot of people who read this blog share my enthusiasm for adventure and travel. We all love to visit amazing places, do amazing things, and then come home and share the stories with our friends and family. Some of you probably even write about it on your own blogs and dream of being a travel writer, living the luxurious life of someone who is paid to prowl the globe and share their stories.

Okay, I’m kidding about that “luxurious life” part, but really being a paid travel writer does have its perks, and if you’ve always wanted to give it a shot, now’s your chance. Travel website, which I happen to be a writer for, is looking for some new bloggers to add to the team, and to that end, we announced a new contest today to find some suitable writers. You’ll find all the details on the contest by clicking here, but in a nutshell, you have until January 31st to submit a sample piece to demonstrate your writing skills. From there, the team will whittle down the entires to 15 of our favorites, which will be posted on the website. Those 15 writers will be given an assignment, and how they respond to that assignment will further shorten the list down to five. Those finalists will battle it out for a chance to join the Gadling team and get paid to write about their travels.

As part of the Gadling family, I can tell you that you won’t find a better, more dedicated team of writers on the Internet. Everyone loves what they do and had a great time sharing thoughts, advice, and stories. It is a collaborative group who loves travel and everything that comes along with it. If that sounds like the kind of place you’d like to contribute to, then you’ll definitely want to join in on the contest. Who knows, we might be teammates soon!

Good luck to everyone who enters.

  1. I would love to be a travel writher but I am quite lazy to write in English. So, if they need people to write in Norwegian or Bosnian, I'll join. 😀
