About

Wanderlust is focused on sharing travel narratives, sketches, and images by both known writers and promising new voices. Wanderlust. Nomad. Wanderer. Traveller. Adventurer. Explorer. Insatiably curious or easily bored? How would you define Wanderlust? How do you explain your need to hit the road again? Can you? As Bill Bryson said in the 2016 Best of American Travel Essays, he travels simply because it gives him pleasure. For some it is also a need, psychological and creative. Without movement, travel, new experiences, life becomes dull. Taking an unknown road, finding the best lake to camp beside, chatting to those met along the way, this is what life is for. Wanderlust is dedicated to travelogues, trip reports, photographs and nonfiction essays taken from unique experiences on the road. In these stories there’s an open sense of adventure and innocence, one that takes a personal experience and taps into something universal. A narrative map is the result.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
