All Posts Tagged: The Six-Figure Travel Writing Road Map
A travel writing teacher from The Writers College, a writing school that offers programs in the U.K., Africa, Australia, and New Zealand, as well as online, recently interviewed my on what it takes to make it as professional travel writer.
It’s been such a breath of fresh air to see more and more websites talking about six-figure freelance writing, and particularly six-figure travel writing, as a reality rather than a pipe dream, but I am still shocked by the various ways people who are not successful freelance writers deride the profession.
(1) The money they are missing out on could be a huge game changer for their freelance income.
(2) If you know how to analyze a magazine, the ideas come on their own. (And if you can’t get a hold of the magazine, we can help you with that too.)
(3) There are thousands of magazines out there looking for travel articles.
Before we launch into how, exactly, to set yourself up with a steady stream of travel writing work, I want to look at some reasons why having a recurring travel writing job is so, so important. Especially for people who are either:
- just starting out as travel writers
- struggling to have a sustainable travel writing income even after many months or years at it (and with a healthy pile of clips to their names)
