Freelancers want to write for foreign publications for multiple reasons: access to larger or more engaged audiences so that your stories have more impact, higher income, and the thrill of a new challenge.
I’ve written stories for publications in the US, as well as in South Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Australia, and Asia. But initially I found it quite a challenge, and struggled to identify the right angles and amount of context for readers without intimate knowledge of my area.
This episode will demystify finding your best foreign markets, the biggest differences between writing for local and global audiences, positioning yourself and your stories, and some tips for finding the best stories for foreign readers.
