We Love Submissions


Just get back from a trip and have a great travel story you want to share with the world? Love to write about travel and want to inspire others?

Traveller’s Atlas welcomes unsolicited article submissions. To submit your piece to Traveller’s Atlas, please send your manuscript to [email protected] or visit our contact page.

At this time we are not able to offer any monetary compensation but we will create for you an author page noting your status as a “contributor” and include an author bio at the bottom of the piece with a relevant link to your active site/blog/socials.

What Kinds of Submissions Do We Love?

Our articles tend to be first-person narratives of all lengths and sizes (anywhere from 800 words and up). Once in a while, we also publish “Top 10” pieces, location overviews and other types of non-narrative pieces. We only require that your piece be interesting, informative and inspiring for future travellers. Please see our other posts to get an idea of content we publish.

We also consider the following factors in helping to decide whether to publish an article:

1) Does the article include relevant, original photography? (We suggest including a link to your relevant photos stored on an online service such as Flickr.)

2) Is the article proofread and formatted for an American audience (i.e., flavor, not flavour, etc . . .)?

3) Did the author bribe me, provide flattery, or compliment my beard? Any and all of these are highly encouraged, especially in increments of $100.
