Road Junky 2008 Gonzo Travel Writing Contest: Hell Trips

This is not about romantic getaway, places you fell in love with, gorgeous mountains, best food, etc. The Road Junky 2008 Gonzo Travel Writing Contest is all about the nightmare & worst rip-off stories, the hell trips when everything that could go wrong did. About your worst journeys, your near-death experiences, when you were robbed, beaten up, extorted, heartbroken or brainwashed.

Contest Guidelines

1. Stories should be between 800 and 1500 words and sent as .doc or .rtf files.

2. No fiction.

3. Enclose your name, age and whatever you consider to be your nationality.

4. Please, please have a good read of Road Junky first. It’ll improve your chances if you know what kind of voice we look for. “How My Photos of Niagara Falls Got Deleted” is unlikely to win.

5. Closing date for entries is December 31st 2008. Winners will be chosen when we’ve recovered from our hangovers.


First Prize – $400
Second Prize – $200
Third Prize – $100
