I'm a freelance writer, will I get credited for my work?

Absolutely! We know freelancing is all about accredation and getting your name shared. An article with us will really boost your portfolio, and you can even backlink to your website to improve your SEO. We feature a prominent bio for each of our writers, both guest and regular, at the side of their piece, and will share your articles across our social media channels. You can share too, of course!

What should my story be about?

This site is all about TEFL and teaching english, so it is a requirement that you have done or are doing TEFL or teaching english. Everything else is flexible!

Most of all we want our articles to help all TEFLers; past, present and future - so your experience is a precious resource. 

The only thing we ask for is 100% genuine and true content - Nothing copied. Feel free to write informally - even include some humour or sarcasm! After all, our audience is thinking on your wavelength. 

Itching to start writing? Here are some ideas to get you inspired:

  • How you decided on your particular TEFL country, the pro's and con's of life there, and what you wish you'd known when you started out.

  • Working as an english teacher? Maybe you have tips on finding a job in a particular country, and can share advice for others that are searching.

  • The best cities to teach in, or the worst. Bad experiences can be just as informative as good ones!

  • Did you do a TEFL course but are you now doing something else? How did the qualification and experience get you there?

  • Anything else, aslong as it relates to TEFL or teaching!
