Pacific Northwest / Travel Blog Write for Us Page

Thank you for your interest in submitting a guest post to Pacific Northwest and Beyond.  We are interested in publishing guest authors on this site, but cannot accept everything we receive. Please read on below for our writers’ guidelines or, if you’ve already read them, you can jump down to the submission form below.

Please note: If your submission is a Pacific Northwest event (as opposed to a post about a Pacific Northwest event) you’re in the wrong place. Click here to submit your PNW event to our event calendar.

What we will consider accepting

Pacific Northwest and Beyond is a website that publishes content about travel and the Pacific Northwest United States. What we eventually will include within these topics covers a wide range, however: travel tips, travel destinations, foreign language study tips, Pacific Northwest content, Seattle vintage memories, photography, travel related quotes (with commentary) and “travel-related” recipes.

What we don't accept

While the primary author and editor of this site sometimes goes off-topic, guest posts outside of the topics listed above will not be considered.

In addition, please do not accept:

  • Posts that are simply a collection of links or promotions.
  • Your affiliate links. We do use our own affiliate links on our site, but are wary of including links for others’ affiliate accounts. We think that if you’re writing a guest post that links to products you’re better off either doing so directly or linking back to a corresponding post on your own site. Affiliate links in your post submission will be removed and we reserve the right to add our own affiliate links if appropriate. This applies to guest posts — sponsored posts will be determined on a case by case basis.
  • We do not accept:
    • Porn, or links to porn.
    • Posts that promote or link to online gambling.
    • Content with speech that incites hate (i.e. posts with bigotry, racial epithets, etc.)
  • Posts that are extremely disorganized or not written in good English. We are willing to do some editing. In fact, we probably will do some editing with your permission. However, we don’t want to have to spend an excessive amount of time revamping your post.
  • Posts that you don’t have the authority to publish. By submitting a post to us, you acknowledge yourself as the author of the post and with rights to post it. This means that you haven’t sold the rights to it somewhere previously and that you haven’t cut and pasted it from somewhere else. We do run prospective posts through a plagarism check. And we prefer posts that are original and not reposts from somewhere else.

We recommend Grammarly as a good tool for self-checking your spelling and grammar before you submit.

What Do I Get For My Post?

Currently, we don’t have the budget to pay for guest posts. This may change in the future, but for now, we cannot pay you for your content.

However, what we can give you is author credit.

That is, you’ll have an author box on your post, if you want, with a link to your website and social media. However, your links must be genuine and non-spammy links.

And you’ll be listed as an author on our authors page, or in the authors sidebar widget on any page that has one.

You also get the satisfaction of seeing your post published on our site.

Do You Accept Sponsored Posts?

We consider including or writing sponsored posts for this site. However, links in paid sponsored posts will reflect the rel=sponsored tag.

Our rates for writing or publishing sponsored posts vary with the type and amount of content; for now please contact us with inquiries. I’ll consider sponsored guest posts, but reserve the right to edit headlines, grammar, etc. the same as I do with regular guest posts. I prefer to write my own sponsored posts. If what you are requesting is a product review, I may be happy to try your product if it’s relevant to this website. However, product reviews will always reflect what I actually think of a product.

How Will Know When My Post is Accepted?

When you submit your post, you’ll get an automated confirmation email. Please make sure you have submitted your email address to us correctly.

We’ll email you when we reach a decision on your post or if we have additional questions before scheduling it.

When will we get back to you? That varies with our schedule, so we cannot guarantee response times. Generally, we’ll contact you in a week or two , sometimes less — or sometimes more if we’re traveling.
