  • Is positive, honest, and insightful.
  • Tells an interesting story about a travel experience, activity, landmark, resource, etc.
  • Contains helpful information about what to expect from transit, accommodation, restaurants/food, etc in a destination.
  • Contains good visual content wherever possible.

You'll build a proven online portfolio
Your work is featured on an established travel site
You'll inspire and influence others to create a better world through meaningful travel
You'll be compensated for your creative work (~ $25USD per article)

How it Works

Briefs will be sent to writers on a regular basis, where they can be accepted. We can not guarantee the number of briefs available, or the consistency of them throughout the year. Alternatively, you can submit ideas or suggestions of your own for consideration.

A brief will consist of a topic and/or headline, along with relevant keywords that we would like to feature in content.

Word count should be in the region of 800 - 1200 words, however, we are more focused on the quality of content and storytelling, rather than an exact word count. It should also follow the guidelines listed in the Smaller Earth Content Guide.
