What GoAbroad is Looking For:
GoAbroad is the leading online resource for meaningful travel with directories that include:
- Study Abroad
- Volunteer Abroad
- Intern Abroad
- Teach Abroad
- Jobs Abroad
- TEFL Certification Programs
- High School Abroad
- Eco/Adventure Travel Abroad
- Language Schools Abroad
- Accommodations Abroad
Content submitted to be featured on GoAbroad must be relevant to one or more of these directories. Please also review current content on the GoAbroad Blog, so as not to run into the issue of submitting an idea/angle that has already been covered.
Suggestions for the type of content GoAbroad is interested in may include: a destination feature (specific to a location), a program feature, a list of your “top” travel tips, a feature about a cultural marvel, or a review of accommodations abroad. Keep in mind, though, that these are simply suggestions and GoAbroad is open to a topic that may not be included here.
What You Get Out of It:
1). PUBLISHED WORK: The GoAbroad online communities encompass more than 45,000 world travelers, with over a million visitors to GoAbroad each month–elevating the presence of your work on the web and adding credit to your name as a published travel writer. GoAbroad has long been known in the travel and international education industries for publishing high-quality content, and the Featured Contributor Program will serve to emphasize this.
2). FEATURED BIO: Also included in your post will be a short bio (75 word limit) with a link to your preferred network. If you would like to include a headshot with this biography, you are encouraged to submit it with the other photos that accompany your post.
What to Expect After Submitting a Pitch:
1). Due to the large number of pitches we receive, please allow for up to two weeks to be notified if and when GoAbroad decides to accept your pitch.
2). If your pitch has been accepted, GoAbroad will be in touch with you via email to request any changes/edits, additional photos and to discuss any other details related to your submitted content. You will submit all content to a specified GoAbroad email address.
What to Keep in Mind Before Writing Article:

- The content must be between 400 and 1000 words
- Review your content thoroughly for any grammatical and/or spelling errors before submitting it for review. GoAbroad Editors will also review the content, but there will be less chance for editorial changes if you do the same.
- Make sure to provide a short bio, highlighting your travel experience/expertise with your post.
- The content must be original and unpublished work. GoAbroad requires that all posts featured on GoAbroad be unique and relevant to readers.
