Wander Tales Writers’ Guidelines
Wander Tales are inspirational, humorous, entertaining, educational and adventurous travel stories as told by women. We have a unique perspective on the world and this area is the place to laugh, ponder, share and learn.
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) Previously published authors are given priority consideration.
1) Approximately 900-2,500 words in length
2) Submitted in word doc format with little to no editing required (send to: wanderlustandlipstick (at) gmail (dot) com)
4) All rights held by the submitting author/photographer.
Wanderlust and Lipstick is where we can come together, encourage each other to take more adventurous leaps in the world of travel, laugh at other’s bumbling travel mistakes and learn about other parts of the world and how we relate to it.
If you’ve been around the block once or twice and have done your research on travel writing for the Interweb, you likely know that most websites don’t make much money (if any!). Welp, you’ve come to one of those. At this time, there is no pay for articles submitted to the WanderTales section of the website. There are some other excellent sites out there that have managed to monetize enough to actually pay for articles (yeah for them!) and I encourage you to approach them if you’re grumbling about what I can offer.
Despite the fact that pretty much all you’ll get around here is some recognition and a place to send your mom if we publish your article, we do 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 to also help support their passions.
If you have a published book in print, a link to that book will be included in your bio. If you’ve got your own website, a link to that will be included as well. These will help drive sales and traffic to you!
