The travel destinations that I intend to cover are listed below.

Expectations on what the article shall include are stated below. Payment for each article is currently set at US$5. It will be sent via Paypal.

If you can submit short 200 – 300 words sample articles that you had written previously to demonstrate that your writing style is compatible to what we are looking for, that would help me make a decision to engage you a lot easier and faster.

If your final submitted articles are good, I may even work something out with you for future articles.
