Applications call for “Chance Encounters” Travel Writing Competition 2020
This is a travel writing competition. Participants have to write a true travel story about an interesting conversation, quirky character or unexpected encounter that occurred during their travels. This could be a local with whom you shared a significant, cross-cultural moment. It could be a fellow traveler who they got to know and exchanged stories with or it could be a stranger in a strange land who you merely observed and remembered.
The story has to be true but writers can change the name if they want to preserve the person’s privacy. The idea is to explore the chance encounters and profound meetings that happen, often at random and usually when they least expect them, when traveler surrender themselves to the road and open up to the joys of travel. Remember these are travel stories, so be sure to set the scene and include the destinations and what it was like.
The IntrepidTimes offers a monetary prize to the winner. The author of the winning entry will receive a payment at a special rate of $100USD and be published on IntrepidTimes.com.
