6. Travel Writers Tip: Digital Images. A digital image can be as important as the words on the page to pull a reader in or offer an instantaneous perspective. Most, but not all travel magazines encourage writers to include accompanying digital images with their article submissions. Make sure to take a variety of photos that are horizontal and vertical. Make sure to offer photos that correspond with the article you are submitting. Select images that have strong contrast and distinct close-up subjects — no sunsets, washed out beachscapes or minuscule sheep on faraway hillsides.

7. Recommended Books for Writers: The Elements of Style by Strunk and White a book to keep handy at all times for all those little writing rules you need to check on.
