Are you a wordsmith and have sailed with SeaTrek before? We would like to invite you to contribute to our list of published blog posts.
How to contribute:
We encourage you to write based on your own experience sailing with us, describing how you feel through engaging stories. Take your pick from the list of topics below:
- Travel experience
- Adventure & Fun
For more inspiration, you can read some of articles written by our guest. For example, story from Catherine Mortensen about her Textile Tour, etc. The more you read, the more you know.
- Short Pitch
Send a short pitch to firstname.lastname@example.org for feedback. We don’t need a full draft just yet at this stage. It is highly recommended for the pitch to be as simple and straightforward as possible.
When we’re all on the same page, you may start the creative process in writing your best piece and submit the draft once you’re finished. While we don’t like to put a word count on our posts, we do prefer to keep them between 500 to 2000 word range to keep it comprehensive and easy to read. However, we could consider something shorter or longer depends on the circumstances.
- Media element
Any supporting image or video is more than welcome but not a necessary requirement. We can provide images or videos from our own media library. Whenever possible, we use multimedia content to break up the blog post to keep our readers engaged and with us in the online battle for the reader's attention.
You may or may not provide a headline for the post. We do love an attention-grabber or “sticky” headline. But no need to stress too much about this, we can help you brainstorm some ideas for the headline that will easily generate clicks.
- Author bio and photo
Your bio and headshot will be featured alongside the published article. Inclusion of links to your own website and social media is more than welcome.
Your article will be published on SeaTrek website and you will be notified once it’s made on our live site. We will also promote it on our social media.
