Globe Soup is a travel website, does my story have to be about travel?

Absolutely not. Globe Soup is about so much more than travel. They about all forms of creativity inspired by the world around us and encourage participants not to write about travel for any of their fiction competitions. Your short story can be about anything!

I’m worried I won’t have been to or won’t know much about the chosen country, should I still enter?
