We are looking for writers, journalists and contributors capable of providing a fluent mix of information, insights, and experience or impressions. Add a sense of curiosity, of humor, and of humanism and we’ll follow you anywhere. This is true whether writing about people, culture, history, politics, art, food, a trip home, an overseas phone call, a point of view, or one’s own travels.
We would love to open our pages to writers who share that view.
We will gladly take you out for coffee and pastry should we cross path. Unfortunately other forms of payment are not available at this time. We’re working to change that and will let you know on this page as soon as that happens. We are also unable to pay expenses, though in some cases we can arrange for press access to special events. USA Revisited promises no glory but does offer an educated readership for your work.
Types of work we publish
Journalism, opinion, commentary, review, analysis, experience, interview, opinion, essay, humor, vignette, video, photography. All sectionsare open to contributions.
As with all magazines, the best place to start is to read some of the articles that have already been posted in the various departments. We are not looking for contributors to endorse any particular style but rather to have their own voice, to be highly informed, and to think creatively when writing about their subject.
Subject matter is very open. Know your stuff, know where to get accurate information, and have fun with the article. There are no formulas, but please to avoid self-dramatization. Use first-person when your experience or interaction with people or place really matters, otherwise let your authority as observer or analyst or journalist do the work.
Though we prefer original material, we are willing to consider material that has been previously published provided that you hold all the rights to it and that you indicate wherever else it has been published in print or on the internet.
Rights and Responsibility
Acceptance of material for posting on USArevisited.com, even if no actual payment is made, is for our non-exclusive right to post the work on this site. We reserve the right to remove the article of our own accord at any time and for any reason.
In accepting for your work to be posted on USArevisited.com you agree that you are fully responsible for the content you provide (i.e. no plagiarism, infringement, or slander).
How to submit
If interested in contributing content to USArevisited.com on an occasional or regular basis, begin by sending some information about yourself (name, where you live, writing experience, travel interests) and about the subject(s) that you might write about and/or approach(es) you might use. Also include links to any pertinent writing samples.
Those with a specific idea for a single article should send the complete article if possible, otherwise send an extended query, along with a brief bio. Our interest in a query does not mean that the piece will be published on USA Revisited.
In all cases, your first correspondence should contain no attachments. All text should be included in the body of the e-mail. File attachments will not be opened unless we have requested that they be sent.
For video submissions send an e-mail describing the video (if not yet filmed) or containing a link to the completed video.
Send all queries and completed submissions to email@example.com. Please include “Submission” plus your full name in the subject line. Be sure to provide your full contact information, including telephone number, in the e-mail.
We appreciate your interest in writing for USA Revisited. We are unable to make extensive individual comments on all submissions. If it turns out that we don’t consider your work right for USA Revisited please don’t take that to mean anything other than the fact that we have a very subjective approach to travel writing, that we in no way represent the mainstream press and/or that we may have posts in the works or already published that are too closely related to your own idea.
