WanderTales are first-person travel narratives by women. Women have a unique perspective on the world and our WanderTales section is one way we honor and celebrate that. For submissions, we seek the inspirational and humorous, the entertaining and educational, and we never shy away from a little bit (or a lot) of adventure.
Wanderlust and Lipstick is where we can come together, encourage each other to take more adventurous leaps in the world of travel, laugh at each other’s bumbling travel mistakes, and learn about other parts of the world.
We welcome published and unpublished authors alike. If you are interested in writing for Wanderlust and Lipstick’s WanderTales, keep these guidelines in mind.
1) Written by (but not necessarily for) women
2) Approximately 900-2,500 words in length
3) Submitted in Word doc format with little to no editing required. Send to: kristin (at) wanderlustandlipstick (dot) com
4) All rights held by the submitting author/photographer
Does Wanderlust and Lipstick pay for WanderTales?
At this time, there is no pay for articles submitted to the WanderTales section of the website. We do offer opportunities for women to win trips, prizes and recognition in our regular travel writing contests. We also welcome inquiries from anyone who wants to join our team of amazing bloggers.
We believe in encouraging and fostering the success of women in the travel industry, including writers, and want to not only provide an outlet for women travel writers and photographers, but also to help support their passions. If you have a published book in print, a link to that book can be included in your bio. If you’ve got your own website, a link to that can be included as well. These will help drive sales and traffic to you!
