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

Club Elsewhere is an online travel magazine for story-led global travel guides. Our magazine is a place for the world’s venturers vent, and wanderers to wonder.

Have you always wanted to bring out your inner travel writer? Do you have a story you feel compelled to tell? We have the ears and the eyes waiting to be touched by it.

You don’t have to be a professional storyteller to contribute, travel is the only rule of the club. You don’t have to be travelling right now either; you can tap into the corners of your mind where your travel tales are stored.

We do not take credit for your story. Your article will be published in your name with a full-bio that you provide for us as well as links to your own websites or any projects you’d like to bring attention to. You may of course, also publish your story anonymously.

We meticulously curate our content and we ask that the stories you compose are inspiring, thought-provoking and entertaining (a little humour never hurt anyone right?). Topic areas we are currently interested in include:

  1. The weird and wacky of travel
  2. Travel romances
  3. Reverse culture shock
  4. What it feels like to travel alone
  5. Unusual experiences while abroad
  6. Digital Nomadism and the reality of working remotely
  7. Travel writing tips
  8. Third culture kids
  9. Africa travel guides and insights
  10. Transformation and human connection stories
  11. Identity and gender
  12. Little-known cultural traditions
