How to Submit

Baedeker accepts travel writing and photography from NYU students, both undergraduate and graduate.

We usually publish stories between 400 and 700 words in length (though longer and shorter pieces are acceptable) with a focus on exposing readers to interesting and practical information about any location on earth (except New York City) and inspiring our audience go out into the world and take advantage of the amazing experiences travel has to offer. While most of our pieces take a narrative form, we will publish anything from lists to itineraries and beyond. We encourage writers to submit photographs to accompany their articles.

For photo-centric submissions, we look for cohesive photoessays that give viewers a real insight into a place and its culture, but we also accept stand-alone images. We prefer to have writing to accompany photography submissions, and at minimum require captions that provide context.

To submit work, please email us at We are more than happy to read pitches and work with submitters on developing content, though it is not required. If you have any questions, please email us or visit our Contact Us page.
