The Asian Persuasion is looking for writers.

If you live, have previously lived, or spent time somewhere in Asia and want to contribute your stories, commentary, or simply write about interesting news stories in the region, we want you to contribute!

We work on the WordPress platform, which has a very easy learning curve if you’re not already familiar. Writers will be given a contributor account where they can write their stories and submit for publication. You can write as often or as little as you like.

You may also submit stories by email below.

All stories are credited to the original author, and you maintain full rights to anything submitted.

I have a blog…can I submit previously published articles?

Yes. If you already have a blog you can submit articles you have already written. We will link back to your blog, which is a great way to increase traffic to your site.

We need writers for:
  • News about interesting things happening in Asia.
  • Feature articles on any Asia related topic of interest.
  • Local guides, tourist spots, and travel tips.

If you’d like to join the team, please contact us here.

  1. Hi! Do you have an e-mail address that we could contact you through? We’re creating a online travel guidebook called Trazy.com where any real traveler can share their travel spots in Korea. We’d love to offer you something that you may be interested in! I’ve left my e-mail address. Please contact me! :)
