Editorial Guidelines


  • Submission should be between 500-1000 words. 1500 words is acceptable in some cases where coverage requires length.

  • Submit your picture, 50–100-word bio, and contact information. We prefer a picture that shows you traveling, but a headshot will do.

  • Do not use caps, underlining, or italics. We do that part, so our articles look consistent. No words are highlighted or in color.

  • Use bullet points and arrows where it makes sense…we love them.

  • Do not abbreviate unless you first put the entire Word in and the abbreviation in parentheses: i.e.., Global NGO Executive Committee (GNEC)

  • Double space

  • We will fix the font, so use any font you like but use 10-12 points in size.

  • People find it hard to read paragraphs with more than ten lines, so judge readability.

  • Use correct grammar and spelling. Make that easy by enrolling in Grammarly.

  • Use 3-6 pictures if available and OWNED BY YOU or Canva, Shutterstock, or a paid service to which you subscribe, just so the pictures are legally yours to use.

Tone & Topic

  • Write for the Ageless Traveler- someone who wants to travel all their life but may have barriers. It is NOT ABOUT AGE OR BEING OLDER. Our community members are often over 40, 60, 70, and 75+, but they are vigorous and healthy. Younger travelers are with us because they like luxury on a budget (always a good topic) or traveling with older family members.

  • Items like travel clothing, food, and gadgets also work for shorter articles with pictures.

  • The tone of your writing should be positive and informative. Self-help and know-how in travel is our brand. But WE LOVE HUMAN INTEREST STORIES AROUND TRAVEL.

  • We do not take articles that are ads or promos for your business or product, BUT we do want to hear about them for our podcast, store, or affiliate programs.

Upon Receipt

  • We Read every submission, and if accepted, we do light editing or ask you to edit if extensive editing is needed.

  • We include your picture and bio when we publish it on website, or any other platform.

  • We social media post about your article and archive it on our website. We ask readers to comment. We mention it on our podcast and may have you as a guest as well if you are an expert on the topic.

Important Agreements
