BECOMING A TRAVEL writer is pretty easy – you just need to travel and write – but becoming a paid travel writer is another matter altogether. As a travel writer who currently doesn’t make any money from writing about travelling, I’m in no position to give out advice on the latter… but when did that ever stop anyone?
I reckon the best way to become a travel writer is to become one. As with all jobs, people are only going to pay you to write if you are already writing and being published, so it’s the good old chicken and egg story again. It all boils down to contacts, hard work, and a healthy dose of luck.
