Ready to Hit the Road and Write About It?

If you think you have a great Road Trip suggestion, send us a pitch. It can be anywhere in the U.S. as long as the idea behind the trip is unique. Include some background on what makes the destination special (Is it a place people don't know about? Is something happening that we should know about?), why you think other people would care, and why you're the person to write it. Our Road Trip stories are always four days long, and you have to be able to travel by the end of August. Use the form below to submit your dream assignment.

For inspiration from the pros, read these road trip stories: Florida: A Sunshine State of Mind, Colorado: Rocky Mountain Highs, and Iowa: Small-Town America.

The submission deadline is June 30, 2008; only one submission per person. The winner will be the pitch the editors deem best. We will pay the winner our standard writing rates (though our standard contract must be signed).
