On the perennial lists of “dream jobs,” travel writer regularly pops up – and yet so many aspiring freelance travel writers continue to dream rather than do. Perhaps they’re unaware of just how much good travel writing is needed. Here are my three reasons why travel writing makes sense and why you should not only write your travel stories down, but make money from them as well… 1. There’s an endless need for good travel writing Editors get plenty of pitches.  But the percentage of well-written stories is not nearly as high as they would like. As a travel editor for nearly a decade, I can say with confidence that there is a concerning lack of high-caliber writing out there and that editors are delirious with delight when a beautifully-crafted piece crosses their desks. Add that to the reality that each editor must feed the beast – publications don’t stop being produced simply because of a dearth of top-notch content – and you’re looking at an ideal situation for the motivated writer to both travel and get paid for the stories they write from their trips. 2. Low (or no) overhead Unlike writing a book, you don’t need to carve out a year’s worth of time to write a travel article.  Nor do you have to save up a ton of money to take your first trip. If you already have a published clip or two under your money belt, then you’re well on your way to landing trips editors and tour operators pay for.  The key is simply expanding past that to land bigger checks. Even if you don’t have a clip yet, plenty of opportunities await out there for travel writers, including write-ups on hidden gems in your own hometown and nearby day trips, as well as trend pieces that compile information you have gleaned from past journeys. Have great tips for seeking out the best shopping haunts no matter where you go that make you the envy of your friends every time you return? That’s a travel story! Know the ins and outs of searching the Internet for great bargains that keep you on budget and make it possible to splurge once you’re in-country? That’s a travel story! 3. Flexibility and sustainability Not only is travel writing something that can be done alongside other vocations and easily incorporated right into your vacations, it can be done from pretty much anywhere with a decent Wi-Fi connection and your notes and photos. In addition to deciding where you’ll write, you have a staggering array of choices when it comes to what to write about. Not only are there myriad travel-specific options, but publications that target other themes – parenting, outdoor adventures, knitting, cats and dogs, fashion, sports, stamp collecting, you name it – have realized that their readerships also travel with the things they love, or to buy more of them, or to meet other people who enjoy them. The possibilities truly are endless! And the diversity gives you the ability to turn one trip into many, many stories. That means more bylines and more paychecks, and long-term relationships with editors who know they can count on you to provide them with the travel content they urgently require. Travel writing is here to stay, which is why it not only makes sense to pursue your dream for your own sense of fulfillment – it makes sense to pursue it as an income-generator, too.
