Looking for some quality travel writing to stir up your wanderlust?

CHECK OUT THE winners and runners up in this year’s Narrative Travel Writing Contest from our friends over at Transitions Abroad.

The big winner, Ancient Wonders and Desert Hallucinations, is a Libyan travelogue — accompanied by some fantastic photographs — that’s sure to get you thinking about a visit to the formerly taboo African nation.

If you’re a writer yourself, consider entering the 2010 competition!

First prize is $500 and publication on Transitions Abroad. Stories running from 1000 to 3000 words are eligible — the complete guidelines are at the bottom of this page.

And don’t forget, too, if you’ve got some shorter travel stories to tell, that we’re now soliciting 400-800 word pieces for our Notes from the Road series!
