The Trail of Butch and Sundance in Bolivia

What makes a good travel article? What does it take to get your writing published about your trip? We have had a run of very well written stories appearing on GoNOMAD in recent weeks, and I think I have the answer.

One story that surely ranks up there is a piece we published by David Atkinson, a British writer based in Bolivia. He queried us about a story idea–to follow the trail of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, seeing how much of the myth is actually true and what else is false. Atkinson’s story just went up on GoNOMAD, and it is fast-paced, full of evocative photos, and has nice flow to it. So that’s the secret…write lively, don’t bore the reader, and most of all, choose a subject that is bound to interest people. Classic old movies, the lure of an obscure place like Bolivia, and a historic story line. That’s a recipe for success!
