This week on the Zero To Travel Podcast, award winning travel journalist Jayme Moye shares everything you need to know about breaking into the travel writing industry, getting published and building a dream career.
Jayme Moye is an accomplished professional travel writer who has won multiple awards and written hundreds of articles for over 50 different publications, including National Geographic and Men’s Journal.
Jayme doesn't hold back in this interview. She spills every industry tip and secret you need to succeed. You'll learn exactly how to get started (even with no experience) and pitch articles like a pro. Give it a listen now and you'll learn:
Exactly how to get started as an unpublished writer with no experience
Listen to the travel podcast interview now by hitting play on the bar above. You can also Subscribe to the Zero To Travel Podcast on iTunes.
Here are a few key points covered in this interview:
So let’s begin with a simple and straightforward piece of advice.
Specifically, read whatever it is that you want to be published in. The better understanding you have of the publication you’re wishing to be a part of, the more likely you’ll be able to create something fitting and desirable.
It’s also a good idea to pay close attention to which section of the magazine you’re aiming for, as well as how the magazine is structured overall. Many magazines are structured similarly with regard to their recurring departments and feature articles, so as you start to recognize the structure of one, others will become easier to breakdown too.
Once you’ve got a destination for a pitch in mind, it’s time to consider the angle you’ll be pitching from. Is the story you’ve got in mind new or a novelty? Is it feature-worthy, or better suited to a specific section of the magazine? If it’s the latter, it’s important to gather information on who the editor is for that specific section. In fact, having a specific editor to contact is always a vital part of the pitching process.
Because the editor you’re writing for will be critical in determining the direction your story takes.
The editor knows better than any other person what the audience of the magazine likes and what aspects of the story will need to be up or downplayed, which is exactly why their input is so critical before you put pen to page.
But how do you make an effective pitch?
Format is everything, and in fact a universally accepted format does exist that will propel you 98% ahead of the crowd if you use it. This ideal format consists of:
✓ Including the word “pitch” in the subject line, directly followed by the story subject (for example “Pitch: The Science Behind Polar Migrations.”)

What is it like to hop in a Land Rover and drive from Europe to India?
On a recent trip to Nepal, I was slowly wandering back on a lakeside trail from a hike near the town of Pokhara when I ran into Niels and Anna, a lovely German couple.
The first thing I noticed, even before their charming smiles, was "The Dude."
Who is the dude?
This badass car is the dude!
The friendly couple were partway through an epic Land Rover overland adventure, peeling out of their home town in Germany just a few months ago and slowly making their way to India.
Immediately, the questions came pouring into my head:
What is it like to drive through the middle east?
How long does it take to plan a trip like this?
What is life like on the road?
Later in the evening we sat down for a pizza and I unloaded my brain full of questions in a very fun podcast interview. Give it a listen now by hitting play on the bar above.
