Travel Thursday: How to Write and Sell Your Own Travel Experiences

By Fitnspicy @fitnspicy

A random Travel Thursday but really informative. With all the trips I have been on I always wondered how I could be one of those travel writers. Not full time but it would be so fun to submit a story.

 

I was sent The Travel Writer’s Handbook, I read this book from cover to cover and highlighted the heck out of it.

 

The Travel Writer's Handbook: How to Write - and Sell - Your Own Travel Experiences

 

The author, Jacqueline Harmon Butler, updates the 7th version to include the lastest technology. She also covers:

 

How to target our market before you begin

What to take along- from cameras to equipment

How to sell it!

 

A few of my favorite tips:

 

Think about your potential market and broaden it, maybe you rented a cool car while traveling. That could be pitched to an Auto magazine.

 

Get your objectives straight, what is it your are trying to describe.

 

Keep a travel diary, you want to remember all those great things you did.

 

Photos. Photos. Photos. Take a lot of great pictures but make sure it is with a camera you are comfortable using.

 

One of my goals is to get a travel piece published, I have had a few for websites already but I want to see my name in print someday. Even if it is tiny
