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?
TheExpeditioner.com welcomes unsolicited article submissions. To submit your piece “on speculation” to The Expeditioner, please send your manuscript to Matt.Stabile (@) TheExpeditioner.com or e-mail us using this form.
At this time we are able to offer $30 per article, payable upon publication, and we will also include an author bio at the bottom of the piece with a relevant link to your active site/blog.
What Kinds of Submissions Do We Love?
Our articles tend to be first-person narratives in the range of 1,100 – 1,300 words, however these are both suggestions and not rules. We also publish “Top 10″ pieces, location overviews, and long-form pieces. We only require that your piece be interesting, informative and inspiring for future travelers. Please see our list of feature articles for examples of pieces that have been published.
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 provide their social media outlet numbers? We love our articles to be shared, and the larger the following an author has on social media, the more likely this is going to happen.
4) Did the author bribe me, provide flattery, or complement my beard? Any and all of these are highly encouraged, especially in increments of $100.
