Call for Submission
Fearless Footsteps - Travel Writing Challenge Now Open
Intrepid Times has partnered with Exisle Publishing to give both new and established travel writers the chance to have your work published in a book and made available to readers around the globe.
To select the pieces of writing that will feature in the book, we are running a travel writing challenge with the theme of overcoming fear. The “Fearless Footsteps Travel Writing Challenge” opens today. Entry is free of charge and you need to get your work in by October 15.
Exisle Publishing is an established, mainstream publishing house with 25 years of experience whose books are available in bookstores across the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and beyond.
Intrepid Times is a platform for narrative travel writing with heart. We do not publish guides. Instead, like our platform, this challenge focuses on true stories that tell of meaningful and possibly transformative travel experiences. No lists or bullet points – just old-school travel writing with feeling.
-> Send in a factual, non-fiction travel story that describes overcoming fear. You are free to interpret this in whatever way is most meaningful to you.
-> All writers are welcome to submit their work – there are no restrictions on age, location, or experience.
-> All work submitted must be 100% unique and original to you and must not be published anywhere else.
-> Your story should be between 1000 and 1500 words in length and be written in English.
-> Entries close October 15, 2019. Winners will be announced in November.
-> Entrance to the competition and participation is entirely free. Winning writers whose work is included in the resulting anthology will receive two complimentary copies of the published book. Writers whose work is also selected for publication on IntrepidTimes.com will be paid for their stories.
