For travel writing, my main outlets recently have been Luxury Web Magazine and the South China Morning Post. I have also been published in Woman's Day (a travel-related service piece about packing) and had a cover story that was to be in the last issue of Travel Savvy. Unfortunately, the publication closed two weeks before release. I am actively seeking new outlets for travel stories.
