How to Submit

We strive to be inclusive and share diverse world views. We’re always looking for different perspectives outside the traditional travel narrative.

We acknowledge that travel is a privilege. That doesn’t mean you’ve had to travel in order to contribute. You can write about where you live, too. Ideally, stories should have a purpose or angle that readers can learn from and think about in deeper ways.

Our themes are very much up to interpretation, and we encourage free experimentation. Send your pitches, drafts, and collaboration ideas to hello@returntrip.ca.

Please note, we do not accept unsolicited work that has been previously published elsewhere.
