IBTraveler is pursuing previously unpublished material for a new series called "Recently Returned." We seek insightful narratives from a recent trip that evoke the sights, sounds, and smells of a destination. A strong voice and a clear point of view are paramount. We are not interested in top ten lists, journal entries or guidebook-style information.
What we can offer is a byline and a link to any blogs you may have to help you draw more traffic to your personal site. You will retain the copyright for your work. However, we reserve the right to reproduce the content as needed. This is a good opportunity for emerging writers to build up clips and get published with a global news organization. It's also a good way for travelers to share their stories with a larger audience.
Please submit a completed manuscript to k.dutile@IBTimes.com with the words, "Recently Returned" in the subject line. Submissions should be approximately 750-1000 words, though quality is more important than quantity. Due to the volume of submissions, we regret that we cannot respond to each entry. However, if your article is selected, we will notify you before publication to create your byline and discuss any photos you may wish to contribute.
