At Indie Traveller, I work from time to time with freelance writers with a passion for and first-hand knowledge of particular travel destinations.

If you have relevant writing experience and can contribute articles that compliment the existing library of content on this site, then I’d love to hear from you!

Rather than going for isolated topics, I’m primarily interested in articles that can flesh out a destination already covered here or which can be linked to from articles on adjacent topics. In-depth travel guides to major cities in southern Europe and South America are of particular interest right now.



1. Great writing ability

Please mention your past work, your own blog, or writing portfolio. I ideally work with professional freelance writers or experienced bloggers, or in some cases with expats or nomads who are based in the destination. 

For an idea of the level of quality I’m looking for, please check out these past contributions as examples: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

2. Familiarity with the destination

Authentic first-hand knowledge is critical! I’m not looking for cookie-cutter or rewritten content.

If you just breezed through, say, the usual sights in a city in a day, then your article might not be quite what I’m looking for. But if you turned the place inside out, then I’d probably be excited to share your insights.

3. Practical, search-friendly articles

I mainly commission practical travel guide-style content, not human interest stories or travel diaries. That said, I believe travel guides benefit greatly from personal anecdotes and perspectives that show off your subjective experiences in a destination.
