SEEKING LOCAL WRITERS FOR LARGE CITY GUIDE PROJECT
Matador Network has created hundreds of trip-planning articles over the last decade for destinations all over the world, but for the last year, we’ve been creating interactive landing pages for this content, complete with all of the info a traveler will ever need before they visit a city.
We’re seeking local expertise — people who really know a city inside and out, and keep up with all of the latest happenings — and are excited to have you as a potential contributor! We have identified cities we would like to focus on a variety of factors. We would prefer writers who are based in these cities but will accept writers who have recently lived there or have spent a long amount of time there — enough to be considered an expert. Please read the Contributor Guide doc to understand the work that would be involved.

The rate for the city guides is $500 total for the guide sections and an additional $100 for the itinerary section.
Please do not respond to this ad if you are not able to accept this rate, as there isn’t flexibility in our budget.
We are scheduling approximately 12 of these guides over the next few months, so you may not receive an immediate response, and deadlines/publish date may be several months in the future.
