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

Club Elsewhere is a digital travel magazine sharing inspirational ideas on travel and life design. Our readers are borderless minds: serial expats, travelholics, weekenders, wonderers and wanderers. They’re interested in the world at large and wish to live and travel better, longer and further.

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. We encourage guest posts from professional writers but also believe that the world’s best-kept secrets could be hidden anywhere. 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 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 back links 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 five pillars of our magazine are: destinations, opinion, inspiration, community and lifestyle.

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: Experience and destination reviews, Africa travel guides and insights, hotels, itineraries and trip planner features.

Opinion: Third culture kids, what it feels like to travel alone, reverse culture shock, unusual experiences while abroad, transformation and human connection stories, cross-cultural experiences, identity and gender, sub-cultures and alternative ideologies.

Inspiration: Wanderlust sparking ideas, little-known cultural traditions, language, food and local customs, the weird and wacky of travel, city guides, affordable travel, bucket lists, solo travel, advice articles and pocket guides, in-depth round ups.

Community: Coworking and coliving, love on the road, group travel and retreats.

Lifestyle: Career construction, digital nomadism and the reality of working remotely, work life balance, travel writing tips, leisure activities, books, adventure, health and wellness.

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”.
