Entry Fees



1 talented writer will receive a free printed copy of our book, and featured placement within the publication, including an author’s byline and an optional link to his/her blog or website.

Up to fifty additional writers will be selected for publication, complete with an author’s byline.

10 Runners-up will receive a guest post on the Travelnitch blog.


We’re on the hunt for exceptional writers who can contribute to our debut publication — travel enthusiasts, bloggers, global nomads. If you had a memorable experience abroad that will engage our young readers, please share. Exotic destinations, humorous anecdotes, and cultural quirks, all in 1,000 words or less.

There are no entry fees, but we are seeking original, quality work that aligns with our mission to “turn bookworms into global explorers, connecting kids with a world of adventure.”
