Submissions

Literary Traveler is always looking for articles that capture the literary imagination. Which writers and artists inspire you? Have you taken a journey or pilgrimage that was inspired by a work of literature?

Literary Traveler focuses on literary artists but we welcome articles about composers, painters, poets, songwriters, filmmakers, and storytellers.  Show us what you are made of and what you are passionate about. What excites you and would excite our readers? Our articles have a unique style that lives beyond the realm of travel guide writing.

There are multiple ways to contribute to Literary Traveler.

Submit an Article for Consideration

The articles we publish highlight the beauty and struggle of people who create, and the places that nurture them. Articles are not necessarily limited to their writers’ experiences; some may be informative about place and artist. Articles should include reference to both a place and a literary (or artistic) work and include a parallel or personal experience that connects the two.

To see the types of articles we typically publish, enjoy a few of our popular articles before sending a pitch: A Rainy Day in Jackson for Miss Eudora WeltyFreya Stark’s AfghanistanThe Irrational Allure of Writers’ Houses; and Queen Mary 2 Interview with Joanne Harris. That said, if you have an article in mind that is a bit outside the box but may be in tune with the site, please pitch us as we are always open to new ideas and angles. Literary Traveler pays $50 (fifty USD) per article. Learn more.
