The Five Reasons Editors Reject Your Travel Writing (And How to Avoid Them!)

Dear Writer,

It’s the brutal reality of trying to make it as a travel writer that much of the best work simply doesn’t get the attention it deserves.

This isn’t because editors are evil. It’s because they’re busy. We know exactly what that’s like: Intrepid Times receives up to fifty submissions a day, yet we publish only one story per week. Even for us writers, it’s not hard to do the math!

If your work has been rejected – or you’re anxious about sending in your first few pitches – then rest assured: Chances are, your writing isn’t bad. In fact, it could be amazing, and yet still not make the cut.

Here’s why:

Many talented writers are holding themselves back by making at least one of the five small mistakes that editors are trained to look for. Any one of these five mistakes will usually “trigger” an editor to move your work into the rejection pile – no matter how good it may otherwise be.

We are sick of seeing otherwise good writers miss out because of these simple mistakes (that are actually very easy to avoid once you know what they are). So, we have put together a short guide that will help you steady the ship and finally start hearing the long-awaited “Yes!”

For now, we are letting Intrepid Times readers download The Rejection Report free of charge. Just enter your details below and we’ll send you a digital copy
