Write For Us

Would you like to write for a growing global audience of offbeat travel and lifestyle fans? Do you know of an amazing building, town, artwork, design project or other hidden gem that you feel we ought to feature? Then why not become an Urban Ghosts blogger and write about it yourself?

Urban Ghosts has a number of writing opportunities for those with a passion for the weird and wonderful. Our site covers a wide range of topics from abandoned places & urban exploration to art & design, history & folklore, travel & living, military history and much more. And we’d love you to get involved!

Do you want to write occasionally or become a frequent contributor responsible for your own, hyperlocal community? Both are fine by us! We’ll even let you link back to your own blog or website where relevant and when it’s of benefit to the reader.

All we ask is that your content is high quality, compelling and truly original, fits within Urban Ghosts’ sphere (which is pretty broad!), is thoroughly researched and well written. In turn we’ll give you a platform to make your voice heard, to write about your passions and develop a body of work in your unique voice and style.

Please note – this is NOT an opportunity for SEO consultants to create ‘guest posts’ with links back to client websites. All posts of this nature will be deleted. If you are a brand or agency and are interested in working with Urban Ghosts, please click here.
