Hi, Traveller My Account

Write for us

Thank you for your interest in contributing to Women Want Adventure. Through articles we aim to capture the essence of adventure in a way that inspires women to take on new challenges, learn skills or build knowledge to set out on their next adventure.

How often do we post articles?
Monthly on the website and through our social media channels.

What kind of articles are we looking for?
Generally, we are interested in practical articles informing women on places to go adventuring, tips and helpful ideas. The types of adventures we cover are usually beyond popular tourist locations.

Articles are usually narrow in scope; we do not cover multiple adventures in one article. Adventures of particular interest to us are places to hike in National Parks, Micro Adventures, helpful tips and practical information about outdoor experiences and places to explore.

What are we looking for in writing style?
There are no limitations on style, as long as the writing is lively and interesting, although a sense of adventure should be at the heart of every article. If we want to inspire and empower women to take on new experiences, then writers must sell us with more than just notions of places and names to adventure, so please do not send us any unfocused content. Some of the best articles are those centred around practical and insightful adventures suitable for a variety of women. Before you begin writing, make sure you have carefully considered our Article Guidelines. A carefully structured article combines support for women to go on an adventure, at a variety of fitness levels. Please submit your article with a headline that suggest what the article is about.
