Writer’s Guidelines

If you would like to write for Great Escape Publishing, please read through these writer’s guidelines completely before doing anything else. The next thing you should do is become familiar with what we publish in our free newsletter, The Right Way to Travel.

To familiarize yourself with the style we publish, sign up here to receive the free newsletter.

Great Escape Publishing publishes articles on the craft and business of getting paid to travel, whether by photography, writing, tours or other means. We also publish short interviews with successful readers and members, as well as professionals working in a field that enables our readers to get paid to travel. We do not publish straight travel pieces.

If you have been successful in photography, travel writing, blogging, the import/export business, or running your own tours and would like to share insider tips of your craft, we would like to hear your story.

If you have taken one of our programs and found success because of it, we would like to hear your story.

Please do not confuse the content we publish on our website and in our newsletter, The Right Way to Travel, with the types of articles we teach our readers and members to write and sell to travel magazines. We do not publish straight travel narratives. We focus only on the craft.
