Contribute to Club Elsewhere - Stories for and by the world. Become a travel writer - where can I publish my travel stories?

Club Elsewhere publishes travel and lifestyle design guides. Our readers are borderless minds, wonderers and wanderers. They have a keen interest in lifestyle design and consume stories, guides, technology and tools that help them curate their own life experiences.

Write for us

Join the club and share the snippets of wisdom only you have with our readers. Are you sitting on your best stories? Always wanted to bring out your inner travel writer? We have the ears and the eyes waiting to be touched by your words.

Our purpose is to promote diverse voices. While we encourage guest posts from professional writers, we also believe that everyone has knowledge to impart, so you don’t have to be a pro storyteller to contribute.

We don’t take credit for your articles either. All articles are submitted on a contribution basis and your post will be published in your name with a full-bio that you provide for us as well as those crucial backlinks to your website or any projects you’d like to bring attention to. You may of course, also publish your story anonymously.

What we’re looking for

We meticulously curate our content and ask that the stories you compose are inspiring, informative and entertaining (a little humour never hurt anyone right?). The four pillars of our magazine are: destinations, travel guides, getaways and lifestyle design.

We don’t turn our nose up at lists. They may contain crucial ideas that whisk our readers off to new places and empower them through information. All lives matter too. Being a tourist is equally as important as being a traveller.

Topic areas we are currently interested in include:

Destinations: in-depth destination reviews, Africa travel, city guides, hotelsitineraries and trip planner features, pocket guides

Travel inspiration and tips: Wanderlust sparking ideas, little-known cultural traditions, language, food and local customs, the weird and wacky of travel, “how-to” guidesbucket lists, travel stories, affordable travel, solo travel, advice articles, in-depth round ups.

Getaways: Group travel, retreats and workshops.

Lifestyle Design: Career construction, digital nomadism and the reality of working remotely, coworking and co-living, personal development, work-life balance, remote jobs, leisure activities, books, health and wellness.

For our content series: 48 great hours in…, 7 ways to get the best out of…, The first-timer’s guide to…, Top 7 lists (we love the number 7 in case you didn’t notice).

What we don’t publish

We have no interest in detractor stories: “the worst countries for women to travel” or “the most dangerous places in the world”.
