Story Ideas That Sell

Everything You Need to Generate
Winning Travel Story Ideas

By Roy Stevenson

Story Ideas That Sell guides you along the highly creative path of inventing and discovering potential travel stories to pitch and sell to travel magazines. Conjuring up viable story ideas are the very bedrock of every successful travel writer today. 

Knowing how to create and develop unique and creative story ideas is the first step - before you write your query letter.  And recognizing a good story idea is critical if you want editors to buy and publish your work. 

Master this first step - and combine it with a great pitch - and you’ll soon find yourself immersed in exciting experiences with fascinating people.

In this book I outline my winning system to generate story ideas that sell.  These techniques have helped me conjure up story ideas that resulted in more than 1000 published articles in 200 regional, national, and international magazines, newspapers, trade journals, custom publications, specialty magazines, in-flights, on-boards, and online travel magazines — all in less than ten years!

Your success as a travel writer depends upon where to place yourself in the writing arena, how to “see” a potential story and how to assess its marketability. 

Story Ideas that Sell has 76 pages of the most popular articles about generating winning travel story ideas.  Packed with tips, techniques and actionable information, it includes:

  • Twelve different ways to dream up story ideas
  • Conjuring up story ideas from places you never considered
  • Which stories sell themselves (and which ones don’t)
  • A troubleshooting guide to help you when you’re having problems selling your stories
  • Five steps for travel writing success (and 4 of them relate to your story ideas)
  • One simple technique that can help you generate dozens of travel story ideas and potential magazines to pitch
