International Living Australia is Looking for Writers…

Here at International Living Australia we believe in one simple idea…that in the right places overseas, you can live better, for less.

A healthier, safer, freer, more affordable life can be yours in one of the many retirement havens we cover.

We live in a world full of opportunities for fun…pleasure…discoveries…adventure… It’s a world full of things you can do to make your life more exciting—and more profitable—and we’d like you to write about them for us.

Write for International Living Australia Postcards

International Living Australia Postcards are articles, profiles and stories from expats around the globe which we email to our tens of thousands of readers every week.

If you’re an expat living overseas, we want to hear from you.

Don’t worry if you’re not the new Hemingway—we’re not just looking for professional writers (though professional writers are encouraged to get in touch, too). We’re more interested in what you have to say than how you say it.

If we use your submission, we will pay you a one-time rate of US$75, including any photos you may wish to include. (Please note: photos are not a requirement.) But before you submit an idea to us, familiarise yourself with the style and subject matter of the postcards by signing up here.

What are we looking for?

We want to hear your story—whatever that may be.

Imagine you were sending your mates back home a postcard. What do you want to tell them about where you are? Why did you make the move? What do you love about your life overseas…your home…the food…the people…the weather…the culture…the low costs…?

Take a look around our site to see the destinations we cover and the range of stories… like this one from Dan, who told us there’s more to Koh Phangan than Full Moon parties…or read about Marie’s new life in Bali where little luxuries cost her a fraction of what they did back in Sydney…

Or maybe you’ve a quirkier tale to tell, like Steven King’s trip to Phnom Penh’s Russian Market or you could tell us how you fund your overseas adventures, like Sharyn did or share some insider secrets on your adopted hometown like our man in Penang, Keith Hockton.

Whatever it is that makes you happy in your new life, sum it up—in 600-700 words.
