So You Always Wanted To Be A Travel Writer?

If you always wanted to write about your travels, but don’t have a website of your own or a large audience, this might interest you.

We are offering you the possibility to write travel stories for this website.

What We Need

We need articles about a location, its people, its landscape, the food, the culture, the wildlife. If you can include some practical tips and insider information, that would be great.

Ideally, places that are less know and off the beaten path would be preferred.

Stories should be at least 500 words long and possibly 1000 words or longer and written in correct English. Sorry, but we have no time to proofread, so bad writing will be rejected.

Each story should be accompanied by 5 to 10 gorgeous and original images.

The story should not have been previously published elsewhere and you agree not to republish it in the 12 months after publication on this website.

What’s In It For You

We don’t believe in working for free.

That said, compensation can take many forms, not necessarily rectangular and green

However, it’s hard to buy hot-dogs with exposure, so we am willing to pay guest writers and here’s how.

For the first article from each author that gets published, we will pay the author $10. Additionally, you get exposure, in the form of a bio, profile picture and a link to your website (or Facebook page or Instagram profile or similar).

We will promote the article on all the social media channels and newsletters we have access to, with a combined following of about 90,000 people.

If the first article is well received and you decide to submit more, each successive article that is published will be paid $20.

We know it’s not much, but everything will be payed out of our own pockets. By the way, have you noticed there are no ads on the website?

What Now?

If you are interested, the first thing you should do is read some of the stories we have already published, to give you an idea of the kind of content we are after:

Then write an outline of the article and use the form below to submit it. You can also email it to us at ugo.cei@ucphoto.me.

Please include some images at low resolution, so that I might judge their quality.

We will answer as soon as we can, letting you know whether we are going to publish your article. In this case, we will ask you to send us the full text and the final images within two weeks. You will get paid via PayPal at the end of the month when the post goes live.
