NYC is a bustling city—just the sort of vibrant, electric place that makes for great travel writing. Trazzler and nycgo.com want to find out what inspires you. Is it the art-deco architecture of the Chrysler Building? An awe-inspiring performance at Lincoln Center? An amazing hole-in-the-wall where you found a piquant falafel sandwich? Whatever your preference, you now have a very good reason to write about it.
This month, Trazzler will choose its favorite piece about any personal oasis (be it a meal at a restaurant or a hike through the woods). The grand-prize winner will receive a $10,000 contract to be a writer in residence in New York City and write 30 Trazzler trips covering the five boroughs. The lucky scribe will stay 14 nights in an AKA luxury hotel residence and receive free round-trip airfare from JetBlue. We are also awarding nine runners-up and four editor's choice prizes.
