The Business of Travel Writing is a collection of business and technical documents created in the process of starting an online and print publication, Accessible Family Travel Magazine and other associated travel writing. This thesis is not intended for publication in whole but has been published in parts throughout the Accessible Family Travel website and other publications. Documents include a media kit, contributor agreements, notices and disclosures, permissions and other forms, several complete working examples of the full cycle of writing travel articles for print and online publications along with business letters and queries needed for working with travel partners.
