RoadRUNNER Submission FAQs

Do you accept article ideas and queries?

No, we only accept unpublished, prewritten work accompanied with photos for possible consideration.

How will I know if my submission has been received?

Do you offer status updates, critiques or feedback?

Sorry, but no.

When will I hear back about the status of my submission?

Due to the high volume of material received, we will contact you only if we plan to publish your work.

Can I submit my article to other publications?

Yes, however, if your article is published elsewhere, please notify us immediately, so that we can remove it from consideration at RoadRUNNER.

How long will my submission be considered?

We hold on to all submissions for three years for possible future consideration, unless you notify us that your submission has been picked up by another publication.

What tours are you actively seeking at this time?

US and Canadian tours are preferred.

Can I still submit an international story?

You can, but keep in mind that we only publish one to two international stories per issue and that our editorial calendar for international stories is often booked up far in advance.

Can I submit a cross-country or long-distance story?

Yes, as long as your submission still follows the guideline parameters (word count, etc).

How do I submit an article?

We only accept articles through our online submission form (link below).

How can I increase my chances of getting published in RoadRUNNER?

While we can never guarantee your article will be published, adhering to the submission guidelines, great writing and excellent, high-resolution photographs are what we look for most. Please use the magazine as a guide for the kind of writing and photos we expect.

I noticed that your Reader Submissions are shorter than your normal tour articles. Can I submit a full-length article?

No, please submit your article according to the guidelines given. Most of our full-length tour articles are researched, planned, and done by the RoadRUNNER’s in-house contributors. staff.
