- One of Hidden Compass‘ editors send us the following to share with you:
“Hidden Compass is an online, quarterly travel magazine that encourages the deep exploration of a destination through powerful storytelling. We believe that some of the most fascinating stories are the ones that bridge the gap between travel and other disciplines (e.g., science, history, and art). Please look at our most recent issue before pitching. We are looking for stories in the following departments: Quest, Portrait, Human and Nature, Chasing Demons, Time Travel, Feature Story, Feature Photo Essay. Not all stories will fit neatly into one of these departments. If we like it, we will find a place for it. Feature stories and feature photo-essays pay $300. Stories and photo essays in other departments pay $200. We are buying first rights to all stories and photos that we publish. If you have previously published your stories or photographs elsewhere, please do not submit them. Exceptions can be made for historical photographs when appropriate. If we source photos to accompany a story we already have, we pay $50-75 per photo. Email your completed submission(s) to email@example.com. Pitches will be considered from authors with published clips. Please include your submission in the body of your email. For photo essays, please include low-resolution jpegs (via Dropbox or similar file sharing service) for initial submissions.
