Write For Us
So, you want to write for Backpackers World? Great!
We’re always keen to hear from travellers who want to share their stories, insider info and city tips from their travels around Australia, New Zealand or any other places. Whether it’s an essay, photo journal, or top ten list, we want to hear from you!
What we’re looking for
Articles that inspire our Backpackers World Travel audience to explore OZ, New Zealand or anywhere else or help them plan for an upcoming trip with tips, stories and photos about the countries, states and territories we travel to (check out our website for a full list). And if you’ve travelled on one of our trips, even better!
What’s in it for you?
This is an awesome opportunity to get published by a global travel brand (talk about bragging rights!). If your piece is published, it’ll be accompanied by your byline, a headshot and bio.
A few things to think about before you pitch
- Make sure we travel to the country, city, state or territory you want to write about.
- Have a look at our Travel Blog to check your idea hasn’t already been covered.
- Please complete the form below to pitch your idea/s to our editors (please don’t submit finished articles – we’d hate for you to waste your time writing something we may not publish).
- We want authentic, original writing. We’re looking for articles with personality and real, first-hand knowledge of a destination or experience.
- We can’t accept anything that’s already been published online (including your personal blog).
- If our editors think your idea’s a good one, they’ll be in touch with more details regarding contributor guidelines.
- We receive a lot of pitches from travellers and writers every day, so please be patient, and don’t be disappointed if we decide not to follow through on your idea.
Got all that? If you have a great idea you’re busting to share, fill out the form below to submit your pitch to our editors.
Please note that because of the volume of submissions we receive, our editors will only contact successful submissions.
