On She Goes
is a platform for, by, and about women of color & travel. We're always on the lookout for a good guide that explores cities, "how to," and more. If you'd like to submit a pitch that isn't a guide, please take a look at the other available categories.
On She Goes loves us a good guide. Take a look at http://www.onshegoes.com/stories/ to get a feel of the types of guides that we're interested in. It can be a straightforward "how to" from a unique perspective ("Sunny & Shade: The Black Woman’s Beach Survival Guide," "Travel 101 for Fat Babes," "How to Travel with Chronic Illness"), a specific type of city guide ("The Foodie's Miami Travel Guide"), or completely irreverent and unique ("MacGyver Packing Guide: The Unexpected but Essential Items for Your Next Trip," "Guide to Taiwanese Convenience Stores").
We're not looking for generic city guides, so please think about a unique spin to your guide idea.
