Faraway Worlds accepts contributions for content related to food, travel and culture. We are open to pitches from all countries around the world and particularly appreciate ideas from local residents. So, whether you live in the United States, Nigeria or Australia, we’d love to hear your stories about the places you know best.
We pay writers when we can, particularly for articles about local culture or indigenous perspectives. Please continue reading for the types of articles we are interested in.
All pitches should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and include a short summary of what you want to write about, including your personal connection to the destination if relevant.
Please note that we do not accept requests for paid backlinks.
Local tips: We love hearing from people who have lived in the destination they want to write about. These articles focus on insider tips and “know before you go” information about somewhere you have lived. Just think about what advice you'd give a good friend who comes to visit your city for the first time.
Personal travel stories: We are looking for rich, descriptive account of a personal travel experience. This could include travelling to a lesser-visited place, a new perspective on a well-known destination, participating in a local festival or event, or a transformative experience related to travel.
Food round-ups: A short list of must-try foods from a city or region. These are usually traditional or widely available foods and can be more specific to a region or type of food (e.g. desserts or street food).
Traditional recipes: Authentic and traditional recipes typical to a destination. We usually keep these reasonably short… it’s about the recipe, not the word count.
Favourite foods: A personal account of a food that has a particular meaning to you and why.
We are especially interested in showcasing indigenous voices and stories about cultural or spiritual practices around the world. This could include festivals, beliefs, myths or legends that you grew up with or know well. These articles are paid.
