From Christy Quinto at Travelers’ Tales:

Travelers’ Tales is seeking submissions to its annual anthology of the greatest travel stories penned by women from around the world. Our books capture the full range of travel experiences: adventure, mysticism, humor, cross-cultural connection, transformation.

Story length can be anywhere from 1,000 to 5,000 words. Previously published pieces are fine, as long as you retain the copyright. Payment is $100 plus a free copy of the anthology. Author Stephanie Elizondo Griest will edit the collection.

Send your submissions, along with a brief but quirky bio, to by September 1, 2009. Due to the high volume, we can only respond to those whose stories are accepted. Happy travels!

    I just saw this post. Is it possible to still submit a story?

    Thank you,
