We're looking for travelers who want to be published
We're putting together an anthology of road travel stories from readers like you. If you love to post on the travel review sites, if you have stories about amazing road trips you've taken, if you are a journal-keeper who makes notes every time you hit the road for a getaway weekend or a family vacation -- we're ready to read your story for possible inclusion in the anthology Rumble Strip: Legendary Road Trips.
For an example of the tone and style of the Rumble Strip series, please look here. There are five books in the series so far: Rumble Strip Canada 150; Rumble Strip USA Off the Interstate; Rumble Strip Europe; Rumble Strip Benelux (And a Boat); andRumble Strip World Voices from the Road, which is a collection of interviews we did with people who wanted to tell a story about a memorable road trip. The idea of this new one is an anthology of pieces written by travelers about their legendary road trips: any country, any length, any distance -- but centered on a road trip taken recently -- in the past four years or so.
Please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the form on the Contact page with a few sentences describing your story. If it's a fit, we'll send you an invitation to query and detailed Submission Guidelines for the Anthology. Your finished story will be 300 to 2000 words. If you have two or three exceptional photographs, please let us know. (But don't send them yet.) Please don't send any unsolicited material -- we will not return it or take any responsibility for it. And please don't send anything that is irreplaceable. The material you send must be original, written by you, and not previously published.
We're not interested in content that is: political; religious; sexual; historic; for children; about celebrities; hypothetical; fictional; or idealized. If we select your story, we'll work with you to get it ready for publication and provide professional editing, layout and design.
Compensation is publication and one complimentary copy of the Anthology, within thirty days of publication. Copyright remains with the author.
