Please note: For now, I am only taking guest posts from other travel bloggers seeking to promote their writing and increase their online presence. I am not accepting guest posts from companies or any writing with commercial links. Thanks.
So glad you’re thinking of writing for EcoTraveller. I’d love to have more people contribute to the blog to be able to grow this wonderful community of like-minded travellers. You don’t need to be a hotshot travel writer or journalist, but you do need to be able to write a decent story.
I am happy to accept eco travel news pieces, travel-related book reviews, stories about your travels, places you’ve stayed and the people you’ve met along the way. Photo essays are also welcome; however your photos must tell a story and not be overly altered. Tell it like it is. I would also love to get more in-depth travel guides on the blog written by people who know the destination well. If you would like to submit a green guide to your home town or favourite destination, do get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
