Pitch Your Stories

If you are a traveler or photographer who love all things nature and has a knack for adventure then your stories will fit right in. Here is how you can pitch in your stories to us:

For writers:

Before you pitch in, please read some of the articles on the site so you can have a better understanding of the type of stories, writing style and tone of voice we use. Your travel stories must be either of the following:

  • Adventure travel with activities like hiking, trekking, kayaking (not in beaches), diving etc
  • Place must have either a historical or archeological significance
  • Exciting travel stories about mountains and forests are very welcome
  • We do not accept stories on any leisurely city strolls, beaches or resort experiences.
  • All stories must be written in the second or neutral voice. Stories must contain helpful information of places you’re writing about. Think of it like this “what kind of information would a traveler going to this place be looking for?”
  • Stories written in the first-person POV will not be accepted.

For photographers:

  • Photographs must be high-definition with 300 DPI
  • We will only accept photographs in these categories: wildlife, nature and culture.
  • Your photographs must tell a story. Please provide information on what the photographs are about, where it is taken and what it represents.

Send your stories or photographs to ameena.jnavab@gmail.com with a subject line “Story pitch for WOC” for writers or “Photography pitch for WOC” for photographers.

The written stories must either be attached in the email or as a link to google docx. The pitches will be reviewed and you will be contacted in two weeks time.
