We're here to help turn that dream into a reality.
When you first dream of being a travel writer, seeing the beautiful beach trips and culture-packed city escapes enjoyed by freelancers on assignment, the gulf between where you are and the travel writing life feels vast. You're not even sure:
We've got answers to all these questions and much, much more. Start here.
This is not a travel blog. We serve up in-depth breakdowns of how the publishing industry really works and what editors actually want to see in your pitch, the nitty-gritty details and dirty little secrets of the real lives of professional, freelance travel writers, and step-by-step guides of how to find magazines, develop ideas, write pitches, and earn money as a travel writer.
For the first time ever, a professional travel writer spills the secrets of how to be a highly-paid travel writer in a clear, step-by-step formula you can easily copy to create your own dream career from how to maximize your online presence, power up your pitching and land recurring revenue to creating custom writing gigs and breaking into the big leagues.
Want to take a deep dive and throw your writing career into high gear? Have someone vet each of your ideas and pitches? In private one-on-one coaching calls, hands-on workshops, and intimate weekend retreats at our Catskills writers retreat, we help you break through each issue that is holding you back and pave the way for your travel writing success.
Feel like you don't know who will buy the story of your chance meeting with Bob Dylan on a rural bus or intimate family dinner in war-torn Syria? You’ll find detailed breakdowns of exactly which sections are open to freelancers, what they're looking for, and which editors you need to reach out to for hundreds of print magazines listed here that accept travel articles.
Instead of fluffy, theoretical advice, Gabi takes readers step by step through the nitty gritty.-
I realized that I can demand more from this career path. I can in fact work less, make more, and still do the kind of writing that I love.-
She really takes the reader step-by-step through the “how to” make this a reality. Thank you Gabi for putting me on the right track.-
