Girls Who Travel is a travel empowerment community. That means we are looking for articles that will help women travel safer, smarter and happier. We believe that it is through the power of our voices that we can support each other, so if you have something to share with your international sisterhood that will make them stronger, this is the place!

Without you and your stories, the Girls Who Travel community could not exist. When you submit your story to be posted on the Girls Who Travel website, we will give you credit as the author and, if you want, a link to your personal blog or other social media sites.

Here are some tips for getting an article published:

  • Ask yourself – does your article further the Girls Who Travel mission statement?
    Girls Who Travel is a support network for travelers who identify as women, trans, and/or genderqueer. Our mission is to empower women travelers to explore beyond their boundaries and to create a more connected and inclusive world. 
  • We are especially looking for articles about diversity, inclusion, intercultural communication and being a responsible traveler.
  • We believe travel is so much more than needing to pull out your passport. Think about all the ways women can explore beyond their boundaries.
  • Please be yourself and not an advertisement. We will not post stories that are clearly just promotional for you or a product.
  • Girls Who Travel is a judgement free zone – Absolutely NO derogatory terms may be used.
  • GWT is an international organization and does not affiliate with any party/organization/faith. Please keep all posts related to travel and neutral in nature.

If you want to include your bio, here is how:

  • At the end of your article embed your photo (no larger than 250 x 250px).
  • To the RIGHT of the photo start with “About ___name___”
  • Then include a short bio of 50 words or less. This can be whatever you want readers to know about!Ready? Set? Submit!
