I’ve always thought being a freelance travel writer would be a wonderful gig. How could you not like going to interesting places, meeting interesting people — then getting paid to write about it?
Since I’ve never been a travel writer, and never written any travel guides, I’m sure that’s an incredibly naive view of the business.
So enlighten me. We have readers from all over the world. Many of you are successful, “practicing” freelance writers and bloggers — who probably have done travel writing. I would love to share a quick “how-to” or “day-in-the-life-of-a-travel-writer” account. Either leave a comment explaining what you do and how/why you do it — or use the contact form and we might even work something out for you to do a guest post.
We’re all in this together, so let’s help each other learn.
