Are you an aspiring travel writer?

Craft a captivating travel story and kick-start your travel writing career.

Travel Writing Scholarships

Whether you keep a travel journal or want to launch a career in travel writing, you still must master the art of storytelling.

For the last ten years, we have been teaming up with the likes of Rough Guides and Lonely Planet to create money-can’t-buy opportunities for aspiring writers to be mentored by industry travel authors. With these scholarships, we hope to not only provide a platform to share travel stories and improve skills, but also to give a few talented writers a foot in the door of one of the most notoriously difficult industries to break in to.

Sharing our stories and our experiences is not only the natural human condition, but it is also the way that we learn about each other, spread knowledge and inspire wanderlust. So to all writers out there, keep writing, whether it is for yourself, for a travel blog or a for major publication because the one thing the world will never tire of is a great story.
