Travel Writing Scholarship 2020
The scholarship is not open to professional writers of any kind. Essentially this is a 'learning opportunity' for someone who is looking for an introduction into the travel writing industry and more importantly, is keen to be mentored.
We would consider you to be professional writer if you have been published regularly in commercial blogs, newspapers, magazines or journals. We would also consider you to be a professional writer if you derive more than 25% of your income from writing of any kind.
If you have only had a few stories published, or keep a regular travel blog then we would not consider this professional.
Please consider the spirit of the program which is intended to help those with a burning desire to be a professional travel writer and need some help getting started.
Yes, your travel story will be publicly displayed on our website. Please don't share personal details or anything you would mind your mother reading in this section!
If you would like your travel story removed from the World Nomads website please email [email protected] with the title of your entry. Please note, your personal information and contact details will not be made public.
You can apply with a pseudonym if you don't want your full name visible on the post. Preferably in the following format: Preferred name. First initial of surname (eg. Ernest. H).
Given the current impact COVID-19 is having on international travel and the widespread health implications, the winners' trip which was originally planned for September may have to be postponed. In this case, we'll work with the winners and other parties to ensure the workshop and solo trips still take place at a future date.
