Writers for Brazil City Guides (paid)

This job has been awarded – now closed.

Research and write about any (or all) of these Brazilian cities:

Sao Paulo, Florianopolis, Salvador, Foz do Iguacu, Manaus.

Deadlines: 4th January 2016

Payment: 25 cents per word (AUD)

Brief: We require well-written, English language copy for the above cities, from writers/journalists who have an intimate knowledge of the place. Around 3000 words each.

You live there, or have lived there, maybe travelled there recently or do so often. You consider yourself an insider when it comes to your chosen city.

The copy must specifically address the following criteria in 3 major categories: Is It Safe?

  • Places to avoid.
  • How to stay safe
  • Safety for women
  • Nightlife

Travel Smarter/Travel Tips

  • Transport Tips – Bus, taxi, ferry, hire car, moto-scooters. How to use public transport. Tips for getting around the city.
  • Money – Cash, currency and credit cards. Shopping hubs.
  • When in Rome – How to enjoy the city like a local

Must Do’s

  • Adventure activities
  • Extraordinary experiences
  • Instead of that, do this.

The articles must address the common thread “how to be a smarter traveller in this city”.

Imagine a good friend is going to the city for the first time and has asked you for advice on how to stay safe and have a good time.

Don’t forget, we are World Nomads, and like you we don’t always want run-of-the-mill, predictable, “touristy” advice. Our audience wants real advice from real travellers. They like cultural experiences, adventure and authenticity. They’re experienced globetrotters, passionate about travel. Many of them like an adventure that pushes them to their limits. They use the excitement to re-energise their lives. They’re travelling with a partner or a few friends. Of course they’ll do the obvious things while in the city, but they want more, something else, a “real” experience.

Keep this profile in mind and let it dictate your writing.

If you’d like to apply for this opportunity for any, or all, of the cities, please apply below. Send an outline of what you’ll write (dazzle us with your arcane knowledge), and impress us with how well you know the city or cities you’ve chosen.
