21 Magazines That Pay for Travel Writing (Reblog)

Some of my fellow bloggers have a passion to write about their wanderlust.  Reblogging this list provided by Erica Verrillo, publisher of Publishing ... and Other Forms of Insanity.


Idea? đź’ˇ 

  • Perhaps you can turn some of your memorable travel photographs into works of art and resell them as art. It's a thought.





If you are not a travel writer, do not despair.  Here are links to other income earning writing opportunities.  Perhaps there is one for you (and me).




 


15 Magazines That Pay $500 or More

While most literary journals generally offer modest compensation (if any), there are some magazines that pay generous professional rates. Many of these specialize in niche markets, which means they have a loyal readership. If you happen to have expertise or a background that would appeal to their audiences, these magazines will be happy to read your pitch.

Dream Italian? Think Italian. Be Italian! (2nd Time Around)

Still continuing to dream my impossible dream. This blog post - Dream Italian? Think Italian. Be Italian! - (1st published in 2015) enjoys popularity, no matter where it is shared. That lets me know there are lots of people who probably dream of vacationing or even living in Italy.

Assuming that's true, I decided to go a 2nd time around and supplement the content for my original post with some additional information found at the HUBPages writing community.  Currently, my writer's profile shows 20 HUBs (or articles). However the only one that comes close to the topic of Italy is the one titled The Seven Kings of Rome


Here are some suggested reads published by my fellow HUBBERs that you are sure to enjoy.
Travel to Italy with them!

Corsicana is an oil town in Texas. 

It survived both the Great Depression and the World Wars, as the oil business was the foundation of the town's economy. Corsicana is home to Collin Street Bakery and Wolf Brand Chili.

Moving forward, 1956 to today, Corsicana has experienced steady growth. In 1985, Corsicana was designated as an official Texas Main Street City. The Texas Main Street Program is part of the Texas Historical Commission's Community Heritage Development Division.

Current Mayor Chuck McClanahan, born and raised in Corsicana, is quoted as saying: "It's a New Day in Corsicana." He believes Corsicana offers Corsicana offers the best of both worlds “ city-ease and country-style.


[Never been to Corsicana myself. But I know some good folks from there! ]

Films to Inspire You to Travel

Used to travel on official government business when I was a civil servant. Because my kids were young and my husband worked for himself, it was easy to arrange my work travel around the summer time when the kids were not in school.  Part of me misses the fun and excitement of seeing new places when traveling.


 
Another part of me is glad to stay at home, since many things have happened to not make traveling "safe" and there is an added layer of stress. 
 
Also, there are no funds allotted for travel in my budget.
But if you can't afford to travel, there are definitely other ways to satisfy your wanderlust or vacation dreams . Always looking for foreign film recommendations anyway. Found this list. It is a great list to satisfy both of my ardent desires.
