The Slow Lane is a space for like-minded people who are interested in a Slow way of life. It provides an opportunity for people to share their experiences, knowledge and stories about places and regions they have visited or where they live.
Slow Lane articles focus on specific aspects of a region – for example, local culture or history, regional food and drink, or local wildlife and nature. These articles can capture the imagination of Inntravellers and help them get under the skin of a place or region. And when the article is written by someone within the Inntraveller community – a traveller, a regional expert, a hotelier – it provides a different voice and the richness is magnified.
As well as providing interesting information for our audience, the Slow Lane aims to act as a gateway to other like-minded people and organisations. We are always happy to include bios of our contributors and links to their websites, and to other sites that are relevant to the content of an article.

Contributions can take many forms – they don’t have to be hundreds of words long. Short articles, photo diaries, ‘Top 10’ lists, recipes and a wide variety of other styles work very well both online and in print.
If you are looking for some Slow inspiration for your contribution, then perhaps you might like to view our Slow Films. To see other takes on the philosophy, have a look at sites such as carlhonore.com or slowfood.org.uk.

We have a Slow Lane editorial panel that meets regularly and they review all submissions. The panel will decide if a submission can be used; and, if so, where and when it will be published. The articles may be featured on our website, through our Slow Lane magazine and our regular Slow Lane emails. They may also be highlighted by Inntravel through social media.
Contributors are notified by the Submissions Co-ordinator by email when a decision to publish has been made, and again once that has happened. We occasionally make our own minor amendments to articles prior to publishing, however, we will contact you if we think more significant changes are needed.
Do you pay for content?

We want the Slow Lane to be a place where like-minded people can share their knowledge and experience, and to be a gateway for readers to discover other like-minded sites. We are not seeking paid-for contributions from professional writers, nor do we provide subsidised trips. Our Slow Lane editorial policy is to provide an opportunity for Inntravellers to have their work published to a wider audience.
