The Fifth Annual I Must Be Off! Travel Writing Competition

It's that time of year again! Time to type up those travel articles, travel anecdotes and travel reflections. We want to read about that place that changed you, about the experiences you can't wait to share with other travelers. Whether your work is humorous, informative, quirky or profound--send it in. This year, submissions are free until May 31; afterward there will be a nominal charge (see below). The purpose for this is twofold: to prevent what happened last year (300 submissions in the last two weeks) and to perhaps add a bit of money to the prize pot. All proceeds from entry fees will go towards the prize money.
