Unpublished Materials

We prefer unpublished materials; however, if you are still keen to have your work featured on our website, our team will put it under consideration. Please let us know the name, month, and year of publication your work was featured in.

Direction

Article direction and photo selection is up to the Wander Journals creative team. We will try our best to ensure that the article comes out the way you have intended it to be. However, we hope you would also understand that Wander Journals has its own style and vibe that we need to maintain.
