How Long Does It Have To Be?

Expand to View

It's really up to you, but you only have up to 500 words in which to share the whole drama-filled saga. Please share only one story per entry.

What do you mean by "misadventure"?

Expand to View

By misadventure, we mean an experience while traveling that did not go as planned but lead to an unusual / crazy /funny experience.

For example:

  • you had your money stolen and had to stow away on a train because you couldn't buy a ticket, where you took hilarious steps to dodge the train conductor, or
  • you got lost and had a crazy experience trying to find your way back to your hotel, etc.

Your travel mishap story does not need to be the same as our examples, which are just an illustration of what we mean by a travel misadventure. We want to hear about what actually happened to YOU!

Can I Remain Anonymous (after all, my tale is a bit embarrassing)?

Expand to View

You can remain anonymous if you'd like to be; just change the names in your story to protect the "innocent".  The only information that we require is your misadventure story and your email address (we have to be able to send you your Visa or Amazon e-gift card).

Forget Anonymity! Can I Provide An Author's Bio?

Expand to View

If you are providing us with your real name or public persona's name, you may include (but don't have to) an author bio (50 words max) to publish with your story. The author bio may contain one link to your website, blog, vlog, online gallery, or other online destination representative of you. No more than one link per bio will be published.

Does My Story Have to Be True and Original Content?

Expand to View

Yes, even though you may change the names within the story, the story should be all true and should pass the Copyscape standards 100% for original content. TravelFave does not check the veracity of each story and is relying on your representation (which is made in submitting your entry) that the story is true. TravelFave does check for original content using Copyscape.  Additionally, if you do use the real names of real people other than yourself, you must have their consent to use their true names as any winning story will be published publicly.

Who's Eligible?

Expand to View

Anyone 18 years of age and beyond.

I've Had Many Travel Misadventures.  Can I Enter Multiple Times?

Expand to View

Yes! You can enter as many times as you would like with a separate misadventure for each entry.

Do I Retain My Publishing Rights?

Expand to View

The short answer is yes, after we publish your story.  The long answer is that the only publishing right that we require is the First Global Publishing Right.  This means that we get the exclusive right to be the first publisher to publish your story.  After that, all publishing rights revert back to you.
