There was a VIP party in a smart room next to the lecture theatre where we, as mere hoi polloi, weren’t allowed. Until the Wanderlust crew arrived and the lovely Lyn Hughes swept us along with her into the party. Wine, canapes, speeches, chit chat. What more could you want?
Wanderlust is “…hunting for exceptional photos from every corner or our planet, taken by discerning travellers like you. So rummage through memory cards, develop old films: if you’ve got pictures that you think are in with a chance, we want to see them!”
PNG UK Tourism have teamed up with Wanderlust Magazine in this fantastic competition for bloggers. The chosen blogger of the month will win either an iPad or GoPro. Then, in December, the best of the monthly winners will be crowned PNGTPA ‘Blogging Ambassador’, clinching a trip for two to PNG.
Travelling the world and writing down its best bits – is being a guidebook writer the perfect job? Wanderlust sifts the facts from the fantasy…
It’s not every day that I open my emails to find I’ve been invited to write a guest column for a magazine. Oh sure, I get those you’ve-won-a-million-quid-just-click-here offers, and how-to-earn-big-money-from-travel-writing scams which go straight into the Junk Box. But when I saw an email in my Inbox from Lyn Hughes, Editor-in-Chief of my favourite travel magazine Wanderlust, I have to admit to a flutter of excitement.
One top tip: if sending [a pitch] by email, give a lot of thought to the subject line. We get a couple of dozen proposals a day… and that’s on top of the other 300 emails I get. So give us a reason to open it. Which would you be more tempted to read: “Wanderlust Proposal” or “Beyond Mandalay – off the beaten track Burma” ?
