Broken Jaw Travel

We are currently looking for experienced and serious travel writers to help compile a series of articles in the comedy-travel niche.

We are looking for 7 articles from each writer with each approximately 1000 words long (750-1500 is acceptable) with the ultimate goal of making the reader laugh as well as being factually interesting and informative. In short, high quality comedy-travel writing. The website aims to be of interest to long-term travellers and expats, primarily aged between 24-40, highlighting the ups, downs and general absurdities of a life on the road. As such, it is necessary that you are familiar with this kind of lifestyle. 

Creativity is encouraged. A sense of humour is a pre-requisite. We have no fondness for political-correctness or the saccharine over-sentimentalising of other travel sites out there. Think the humour of cracked.com meets the informative tone of Matador Network and you are somewhere in the right ball-park.

Please respond with relevant samples of your work.

In addition to the payment we will also include a bio of yourself as the writer as well as a link to your blog (if it is in the travel niche) hopefully driving a little bit of traffic in your direction.

We are currently seeking list-style articles such as these;

“6 Kinds of Expats You’ll Meet In Ho Chi Minh City”
“7 Reasons You Should Never Visit Romania.”
“How to Survive The Tran-Siberian Railway – 8 Steps”
“5 Facts That Prove Japan Is Totally Insane”

In the future we will be expanding to include interviews with not-quite-so-average expats or travellers (bands, tattoo artists, street performers etc.) as well personal travel stories. Again, our current preference is for list articles but nevertheless, if you think you feel you can offer something special in these areas, we are more than willing to hear your idea.

It is important to note here that we are NOT TRYING TO DISCOURAGE people from travel but are in fact, hoping to ignite the wanderlust of those who really seek out the weird and wonderful on their journeys while also pulling no punches about the reality of a travelling lifestyle.

We are a fledgling but ambitious website and we are actively seeking long-term contributors so if we like your stuff and feel like you would prove a good fit for our team, the opportunity exists to secure ongoing, reliable and indeed better paid work.

Kind regards,
Gareth
