Here are some tips for getting an article published:

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.

- 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!
