Our mission is to create fresh, immersive articles on local travel and things to do in Cape Town.
CapeTownInsider is always looking for smart, new content from writers like you.
We are based in Cape Town, South Africa and our content focuses around our city as well as travel destinations around the country. We love new ideas, new destinations and different things to do so please get in touch!
If you have an article that works in the South African context, we’d love to hear from you.
Write for us: CapeTownInsider.co.za welcomes unsolicited articles and blog posts. If you are interested in writing for us, please fill out the form below.
Should I write a headline?
That’d be great! We reserve the right to tweak it for SEO, style or just to make it more attention-grabbing. But if you want to suggest one, that makes our job easier.
Will you edit my post?
We’ll edit for content and clarity, doing our best to preserve your voice. You’ll be able to see our edits in before we go live.
Anything else I should keep in mind?
Posts should be written in blog style, with short paragraphs and lots of white space. Including a few sub-headings is much appreciated, and please use only one space between sentences!
Should I include a photo?
No need. We’ll add one.
What about my headshot?
Our system uses your email to grab your headshot from Gravatar, so make sure your photo is uploaded there.
What should I do after I submit my post?
When it runs, we hope you’ll be active in the comments, responding to readers’ questions or thoughts.
