Welcome to the Midwest Travel Journalists Association Inc. website!

The Midwest Travel Journalists Association Inc. is a newly incorporated  not-for-profit organization for professional travel journalists and destination marketing representatives. Our membership includes award-winning travel writers, editors, columnists, photojournalists, reporters, broadcasters, book authors, bloggers, new media producers and official staff of major travel destinations, regions, states and cities.

MTJA active and associate members are based in 13 Midwestern states, but our assignments take us across the United States and around the world. We work in both traditional print and emerging electronic media for a wide audience of readers, viewers and listeners throughout our region, our country and beyond.

Our members network by attending spring and fall conferences each year that result in story generation and valuable exposure for host sites. We also manage several awards programs to recognize outstanding travel journalism, exceptional travel experiences and innovative promotional programming. And, we have a lot of fun along the way!
