We are not looking for destination pieces that describe in flowery "amazing" terms your experience, moralistic essays on the pros and cons of a postmodernist view of travel, nor are we looking for travelogues or blog-like posts that are often too overly personal and self-involved to resonate with others on their own paths of discovery. We are looking for evergreen well-written inspirational pieces that will lead others to experience the sense of engagement as a global citizen.
Accompanying photos that enhance the narrative are highly preferred, as strong visuals often adds a substantial component to a travel narrative on the Web. Photojournalistic essays or accompanying videos will also be considered, and gentle (self)irony or humor is always appreciated.
A descriptive essay outline is composed of the following: an introduction, a body and a conclusion. Prior to writing, identify the topic first. This would be the focus of the descriptive essay and the details included in the outline should revolve around the topic. The main subject could be a place, a thing, an event, an experience or a person. After finally deciding on a topic to talk about, jot down all the pointers that have to be included in the descriptive essay. It does not necessarily mean that all the items written on the outline should be included in the article. Trim down the ideas until only those that are very relevant and useful in depicting the topic are left.
