Welcome, world traveler with a passion for storytelling and writing! We're glad you're here.
At Go Overseas, a core part of our mission is producing stories and other forms of content that help answer every question that travelers like you might have about studying abroad, teaching abroad, taking a gap year, or the other topics we cover. To help meet that need, we rely on writers like you to share your stories, experiences, and expertise.
Important details: For stories we publish, we expect them to be at least 1,000 words long and we pay $110 per article. Articles are assigned with a two-week deadline, so if you can't meet that schedule, please don't agree to do a story.
Before you send us a pitch, please check out our Content Guide which covers our brand voice and style. In short, we're looking for high-quality articles written by topic experts which pull the reader in, give them the best information possible, and do it in a friendly, encouraging way. Are you up for it?
