One hundred percent of the content in Nowhere comes from submissions. Thirty percent of the stories we publish are by first-time writers. We don’t take just anything; submitting is competitive, and our staff focuses a keen eye on narrative, setting, character, story arc, detail, research, reporting and authenticity. With fifty years of editing experience in the travel world on our masthead, the editing process is comprehensive—making your work look its best before publishing.

We support our writers by submitting the best stories of the year to contests and anthologies. The magazine and its contributors have been anthologized in The Best American Travel Writing, Lowell Thomas Travel Awards, and magazines and reviews around the world. We write blurbs and reviews for our authors, as well as publicize their books and other work on our social media pages. We aim to cultivate a welcoming, encouraging space in which anyone—portfolio or no—can engage and entertain readers who return to Nowhere for the best travel writing, anywhere.

Nowhere’s audience seeks long-form, complex stories, and they take delight and care in reading your work. They aren’t looking for a quick fix or a forgettable distraction. If that sounds like your people, we are your introduction.

Award-winning literary travel magazine, Nowhere, is accepting submissions for the Fall 2017 Travel Writing Contest.

We are looking for young, old, novice and veteran writers to send us stories that possess a powerful sense of place. Stories can be fiction, nonfiction or essay, but please indicate which genre at the top of your manuscript. Entries should be between 800-5,000 words and must not have been previously chosen as a winner in another contest. Previously published work is accepted, but again, please indicate this. Every submission will be read blind, so anyone can win...

The winner will receive $1,000 and publication in Nowhere Magazine. Up to ten finalists will also be published. Brush off your manuscripts or write something new and send it to the only literary travel magazine going... We look forward to reading your work!
Nowhere is looking for energetic, detail-oriented and reliable interns. Editorial experience required. Tasks include general office work, editing, website maintenance, photo research, social media management, archiving, chainsaw juggling and everything else we do at HQ — except you can do it remotely. Internships are three months in length, two days a week or equivalent, with a flexible schedule dependent on location. Interns will be paid a stipend of $200 at the end of the term. References will be given to those who complete their term and impress the editorial staff with their work.
