We need writers! Our new website, Expatsandaliens.com, is geared towards international living and travel and the main categories are:

Destinations
Travel Tips
Making Money
Retiring
Moving Tips
Staying Healthy

We are looking for some new writers and this is a good chance for aspiring writers to start building their portfolio.We are a small startup funded by yours truly and can only afford to pay $10 per submission at this time, but we are happy to provide backlinks to your website as well as a small bio about you.

We are especially looking for stories from expats living in developing countries or exotic locations. Central America, South America, Japan, and India are places we really need some content from. Our submission details are as follows:

All submitted articles must be your original work and currently unpublished. You will get writerís credits for your submission with a small bio included at the end if you would like. We can also provide a backlink to your blog.

An acceptable article length is between 500 and 1500 words and should include at least two and up to ten photos. If you are article is really good, we may consider publishing it with a stock photo.

What We are Looking For

Please take a moment to look at the categories and stories on our website, expatsandaliens.com to get an idea of the types of articles we publish. Generally if it is amusing or informative and happening abroad, we want to know about it. Unlike many other international living websites, we arenít biased. We want to inform our readers about all aspects of living and traveling abroad. Send us the good, the bad, and the ugly. We want it all.

If you are making money living overseas, our readers want to hear about it. We love stories that inform our readers how to make an income while living abroad; preferably more original ideas than freelance writing.

Do you live in a great little expat community that not a lot of people know about? Tell us about your lifestyle there and what you enjoy about it.

Were you hassled by some dirty cops and bilked out of some money? Was your motorbike stolen? What happened and how did you handle it? Help other travelers avoid the same fate by telling your story.

These are just some examples of things we publish. We also like how-tos, destinations guides, top 10 lists, travel tips, travel mishaps, stories about retiring abroad, and more.

here are some more titles we will be publishing soon:

"Cost of Living the Good Life in Cambodia"
"Driving in Cambodia, What Kind of License Do I Need?"
"Moving to the Netherlands? Expect the Unexpected"
"Guide to Hanoi's Markets: A Shopaholic's Dream in Vietnam"
"The Philippines: Long-Term Stay Finally Getting Easier"
"Medical Care in Cambodia: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly"
"Moving Abroad: What to Do With All My Stuff"

Like we said, if itís amusing or informative and it happened abroad, we want to know about it.

At this time we are paying $10 per accepted submission but we plan to increase out rates as we grow. This is a great opportunity for beginning travel writers and expats who are trying to break into the industry. You can submit your article or samples to editor@expatsandaliens.com. We try and respond to all e-mails within 5 business days.
