Submitting an application to be an author

Before submitting, do your homework. Tell exactly what you can offer Lonely Planet. Tell about your travel experience. Are you interested in a certain part of the world, or a particular Lonely Planet series? Do you have an idea for a brand new book or series? Do you want to write a new guidebook or update an existing one? New authors are generally given a small project for their first contract and then take on bigger assignments from there.'

You will need to send a CV and details of your published work to the address listed on page 173 at the end of this book so before submitting anything, you would be well advised to check out the information on the Lonely Planet website at www.lonelyplanet.com/about. Scroll down the page to 'Work for Us' and click on the link 'Become an Author'.
