Let's start the process! After our contact, as discussed, please find below the interview lay-out to fill in. Your form should be filled in in English. Make it almost as if it could go online just like that. Of course we will edit your article to perfection and you always have the last say. 

We want you to be proud sharing your story to the world!


 the steps FROM filling in this form TO publishing your tale.

  1. Please fill out the form below. Make sure you don't overdo it with the word count. This is just because we have done many trials and errors and we know this amount of text in our articles works best.

  2. One of our editors reviews your article and we'll get in touch to schedule a call in to (e-)meet and go through it together. 

  3. You send us 10 pictures to accompany your article. Best way to do that is through wetransfer or dropbox. Make sure that you have the rights for all of the pictures so we don't run into problems. And please mention the photographer in the picture name file. This way we can give the credits to the photographer in your article too. Win-win.

  4. We'll send you the final article for review and we share a date of launching with you.
