Turn Your Vacation Stories Into an Assignment for ISLANDS

Been planning a trip to the Bahamas? Make sure to pack your reporter’s hat right next to your sunscreen and towel. ISLANDS is looking for freelancers to cover everything related to the island lifestyle, be it the cuisine or the festivals.

Over the years, the pub has maintained its reputation as an intelligent travel magazine with eye-opening photography and bucket-list travel experiences. “Islands are often home to the last little pockets of independent cultures, places where traditions endure,” said editor Eddy Patricelli. “We aim to empower our readers with the tools to find these places and enjoy them.”

Yet, with an audience of island-goers, editors aren’t looking for a run-of-the-mill pitch that could pass for a Wikipedia entry. Patricelli stressed, “It’s basic business sense: Know your potential client before knocking on the door.”

For more details and editor’s contact info, read How To Pitch: ISLANDS.
