Call for Submissions:

TimeTravel-Britain.com is a combination of a travel e-zine and a
travel database. The emphasis of the site is "historic
destinations." We want every article on the site to give the
reader an idea of the history of the site or area being covered,
as well as a glimpse of what the visitor to that site can see
today. Articles can approach topics from the historical side
(e.g., a historical overview of an event, along with a discussion
of locations associated with that event that a visitor can see
today), or from the travel side (focusing on a destination and
what one can see today, along with some background history on the
site). The site is expected to "go live" in early spring 2005.
We're looking for a variety of travel features, including:
"All About the Town..." Historic highlights of a specific town
in England. The article should begin with an overview of the
town as a whole (e.g., what makes this town interesting
historically and as a travel destination?), and discussions of
several key sites within the town, such as historic houses, the
best museums, etc. Query first to make sure the town hasn't
already been covered. 2000-3000 words, $200-$300.
"Destination Feature." Focuses on a particular "must-see" single
historic destination. The destination could be a single stop or
(like Hadrian's Wall) include multiple stops. 1500-2000 words,
"Miscellaneous Feature." This could include profiles of
artisans/crafters involved in a historic craft; "hands-on" travel
such as participating in an archaeological dig; round-ups of
"best" destinations (such as best haunted inns), seasonal
articles (where to experience a Victorian Christmas), etc.
1500-2000 words, $100-$200.
"Worth a Stop." Short features on destinations that may not
merit full-length coverage -- e.g., a place you'd visit if you're
in the area, but might not drive out to see all by itself.
500-1000 words, $50.
"Short Miscellany." Short features on interesting, quirky,
unusual topics. This section could include articles on food,
recipes, costumes, crafts, recent historical/archaeological
discoveries, etc. 500-1000 words, $50.
We're also interested in column proposals. Columns will
initially run bimonthly; pay is $100 per column.
