TravelLady Magazine accepts articles from any source as long as they are well written and have accompanying photographs.  We do not pay for submissions at this time but offer other benefits.  If you are interested, contact Madelyn.

Part of writing an article for TravelLady requires the writer to review the web site and decide in which sections they wish their work presented. Example: Destinations, Europe, Russia. Actual instructions for creating these link instructions are contained in the guidelines.

Here is how to submit articles.

1. Send all proposed articles as attachments to Madelyn Miller for approval. If you are not using Microsoft Word, send the article as an attachment but ALSO send a copy of the article in the body of the email so Madelyn can read it.

2. Identify the email "subject" by putting the title of the article in the subject line.

3. Begin the body of the text with the title of the article. Do not skip a line. Directly beneath this place the subtitle if you have one. Directly beneath this place your name.

12. When Madelyn Miller has approved the article for publication, she will notify you by assigning the article a reference number. Any subsequent emails regarding the article need to be identified by this reference number as well as the article title IN THE EMAIL SUBJECT LINE.
