Ever thought of one day becoming a travel writer? This might be your chance.

Travelettes.net has been around for two years and during that time, has brought to you lots of information and inspiration regarding all things travel. The feedback from you guys has been phenomenal, we’ve won lots of new readers over the past months and we’re excited to continue at doing our best to dish up the best travel stories and pictures for you to enjoy.

A very special project the Travelettes are currently working on is a book which will include 33 short stories based on true travel adventures that happened to us. This book, which will come out in spring 2012, will be a testimony of all the weird, funny, romantic, crazy, adventurous and incredible stuff that happens to people when they backpack travel, heels on or off.

Travelettes are not just the authors of this website, it’s any female who goes out traveling the world. With this in mind, we decided that 3 of the 33 short stories should be written by you – our readers.

This is you chance to become a published author and share your best travel story with thousands of others.

  • 9000 – 13000 characters
  • written in english or – better – german (the book will be published in German, for the German market)
  • it should be funny and written in first person
  • the story ought to build up a tension culmulating in a climax relative to the  central theme of the story
