As you can tell by our name, we are only interested in the subject of travel. This can be fiction or non-fiction, targeting children or young adults, written in the form of a children’s book or novel (for short stories, learn more about our quarterly magazine). We are passionate about transforming young readers into global explorers so your story should take them on a journey, embracing the five senses and paying homage to a region’s culture and/or history.
At this time, we are not accepting submissions of poetry, guide books, dissertations, theses, or informational pamphlets. Original submissions only please.
- Type your submission using a single primary font (we recommend 12 pt. Times New Roman) and default style headings to make it easier for us to review.
- If you are submitting a novel please email a query letter first, including a written sample no more than 10 pages, double-spaced. If we like it, we will request to see the full manuscript.
- If you are submitting a children’s book, send your completed manuscript in PDF format to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you fail to comply with these guidelines, your manuscript may not be reviewed.
Before you hit send:
- If you include excerpts from copyrighted works, you must obtain permission from the copyright holder prior to submitting your manuscript.
- Understand that if we accept your manuscript for publication, it will be copyedited in accordance with our in-house style guide.
- Please review our complete Terms & Conditions for complete information regarding licensing and copyrights.
Why partner with Travelnitch?
We work with a small handful of authors because quality is more important to us than quantity. The benefit is a close working relationship with much of our focus on you and your book. Unlike many larger publishing companies, we support you every step of the way, offering editing services, printing & distribution, and publicity before, during and after launch. We do not ask that you sign over existing copyrights to us, however we do require a license to use, reproduce, publish, translate, distribute, and publicize your submitted work in perpetuity.
Please understand that while we greatly appreciate your submission, we may only respond to those with whom we wish to pursue a partnership.
Thanks for your interest in Travelnitch Publishing!
