We’ve talked before about how zeroing in on what interests you most as a travel writer can help you power up your travel writing career quickly, and the fact that most successful travel writers have several of these different major and micro niches.
But where are all these special interest publications looking for travel articles hiding?
When you’re new and need to line up regular work, these publications can be an idea jumping off point, because once you show the editor you understand his or her topic area and you are reliable, you’ll get a steady stream of assignments coming your way.
