Issue #115: How to Earn More - Sell Your Travel Stories Around the World
May 23, 2016
Greetings Fellow Travel Writers and Bloggers!

Linda and I got the week off to a great start on Monday & Tuesday at the Northwest Travel & Words Conference in Walla Walla, on the plains of Eastern Washington. The conference was held in the beautiful historic Marcus Whitman Hotel.

Several PitchTravelWrite subscribers attended and it was great fun to catch up with all of you!

The photo above shows me with Jed Vaughn and Kurt Jacobson, with a mural of the Marcus Whitman hotel behind us. Kurt won the prize for coming the longest distance - all the way from the east coast!

My luncheon presentation was about how to get travel stories published in multiple genres and it was well received. Hopefully some of the novice writers went into a pitching frenzy when they got home & will start getting their stories published.

From Walla Walla we had a peaceful drive down the spectacular Columbia River Gorge to Portland, Oregon, where we collected our long-stay visas at the Thai Consulate. Now we’re back in Seattle, in the final stages of putting our belongings into storage. We fly out on June 1st.

Our first stop is Chiang Mai, Thailand where we’ll be doing research to create an exciting itinerary for our upcoming travel writing workshop.

If you’ve never been to Thailand or you’re itching to go back, plan to join us in Chiang Mai in late October.

More details will be available once we’re on the ground. Stay tuned.

Thinking internationally is an important strategy for earning more and making the most out of your articles.

This week’s featured post invites you to expand your boundaries and sell your travel stories around the world. It tells you how to do it, why it can help you earn more money, and how to get paid.

If you want to earn more and add some excitement to your bylines, this article is for you.
