Have you surfed Cuba’s coastline, hiked in Turquino National Park, walked along Havana's Malecon, learnt about the production of tobacco from a farmer in Vinales? We're looking for pro travel writers to be featured in our Cuba Insiders' Guide!
Please only apply for briefs regarding areas you have direct knowledge of. Research is great (and getting the details right is important), but what we’re really looking for is your first-hand expertise.
We’d also like you to weave in some descriptions of what you personally saw and experienced: describe the unique landscapes in the Vinales Valley, tell us about interactions with local people, give us details on the local festivals you stumbled upon – bring Cuba to life for the reader. Assume they know nothing.
Please note – we have specific briefs, with specific requirements for style, tone and approach. DO NOT SEND COMPLETED WORKS THROUGH THE APPLICATION FORM. You must apply to be awarded the commissions, where you should include links to published work or your own travel blog, and if you’re successful, we’ll be in touch with more details regarding the assignment.
Deadlines: Applications have closed.
Payment: US $0.50 per word.
Expertise required: Professional writers and photographers wanted. See individual stories for more details. Read through our guidelines for writing here.
Include links to your personal blog, articles that have been published in the past, and a profile page that details your expertise.
The more detail you provide in your application, the better your chances of hearing back from us!
We'll contact you if your pitch has intrigued us. Give us detail that will make us want to know more.
