Call for Submissions: The Best Women's Travel Writing 2011

Post date: 08 September 2010
Deadline: 21 September 2010

Women writers, please send us your best stories about travel throughout the world for our annual series, The Best Women’s Travel Writing. Previously published essays (within the last year) are OK. We're looking for the full range of experience: adventurous, mystical, funny, poignant, cuisine-related, cross-cultural, transformational—as well as solo travel and travel with friends, mates, and families. To get a sense of what we want, please see The Best Women's Travel Writing 2010, The Best Women's Travel Writing 2009, The Best Women's Travel Writing 2008, The Best Women's Travel Writing 2007, The Best Women's Travel Writing 2006, and The Best Women’s Travel Writing 2005.

Estimated Release Date: February 2011

Please include on your essay all of your contact information, plus a 3- to 10-line bio about yourself. Multiple submissions OK. Email your submissions to submit@travelerstales.com. Essays will not be returned; notification of acceptances only, close to publication date. Essays not selected will be considered for future Travelers’ Tales books, unless author explicitly requests otherwise.

Note: We collect year round for this annual collection, so if you miss the deadline your story will be considered for the following year.
