Sit back and enjoy the flight. If travel writing is your niche, that standard flight-attendant message should get your attention.
Let me explain.
With the Thanksgiving holiday in the rear-view mirror, an estimated 30 million people in the U.S. are back home or back to work after catching a plane to celebrate. Many more travelers will book flights between now and New Year’s.
And for every passenger, there’s a little something for them in the seat pocket in front of them. No, I’m not talking about the barf bag. It’s the in-flight magazine.
You won’t find many of these custom pubs in Writer’s Market (there’s only two listed).
But nearly every airline in the world has one. And most in-flight magazines depend on freelancers for travel writing pieces, profiles, features, and front-of-book content.
The big bonus? Unlike many online travel markets, in-flight magazines usually pay solid rates.
