Become a Travel Writer for Afar

AfarAt Afar, editors are looking for culture-savvy freelancers to cover destinations abroad and in the U.S. with an in-depth perspective. Translation: no five-star hotels or resorts, please.

In a survey, almost 90 percent of Afar readers said they “visit places most travelers don’t see” and 74 percent agree that they “stay in one place longer to experience its culture,” even participating in local events. This isn’t the Hawaiian-shirt-and-fanny-pack wearing group.

With that in mind, freelancers are welcome to pitch creative ideas that help these globetrotters learn even more about their next destinations. For pitching etiquette and editors’ contact info, read How To Pitch: Afar.
