Locations can be exotic or UK based, and the opportunities are endless for the travel writer. Whether it be a plane or train journey, a cruise or boat trip, extreme sports or local heritage, or something completely new and different.
Airline brochures are a market always on the look out for fresh travel articles and are a great way to break in to travel writing. Begin a collection of brochures, review the content and if you think have what it takes then start to submit your work.
Most newspapers and magazines regularly publish travel features, from the daily tabloids to the lifestyle magazines, health, parenting, craft, weddings and so on. And not forgetting local newspapers and county magazines.
Writing for travel magazines is not an easy area to break in to, though if you have knowledge of a particular country, city or region and have a strong writing ability, then travel magazines are worth approaching. Popular travel magazines include Wanderlust and The Sunday Times Travel Magazine.
