Literary Traveller magazine

As it's summer, I thought I'd post another market for travel writing. Payment is nominal, as is usually the case with on-line magazines (if they pay at all), but you get the writing credit, you write off your expenses, and for writers, this magazine is a natural:

Literary Traveler was launched in March of 1998. We currently have around 80,000 visitors per month and over 5,000 subscribers. Our audience is made up of people who love to read and travel and who are interested in literature and the arts.
We are seeking articles that capture the literary imagination. Is there an artist or writer that has inspired you? Have you taken a journey or pilgrimage that was inspired by a work of literature? We focus mainly on literary artists but we welcome articles about other artists: composers, painters, songwriters, storytellers, etc.

Subject matter can be anything artistic or creative. Each one of our articles in some way is about someone who creates. Some of our articles are subjective first person travel pieces. Some take a meditative slant on a visit somewhere, and reflect on a theme. Others are objective articles about places or writers, or artists.

Article Guidelines:
- 1500 - 2000 words in length
- First-person narrative that inspires our readers
- Please send accompanying jpegs (sized small)

We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to read our current articles before writing. New writers to LT often make this mistake and we have to ask them to rewrite. Our articles have a unique style (i.e. no travel guide writing).

Rights: We run material that has not been previously published. We hold exclusive rights, and will keep your article archived on the web.

Payment: Currently, we pay $50 US per article.
