ZoziWriters Guidelines are here.

Someone once said we’re in the “memory making business”—we like that. We’re not about “escapes” and “getaways.” We’re about inspiring our readers to embrace life—preferably in a giant bear hug. From Everest Base Camp adventures to local cooking classes to tips on how to put on a wetsuit without looking like an idiot, we help people get away from their computers and out exploring the world.

We are the friend you ask before you plan anything because you know we’ll spend three hours excitedly researching it with you, and we’ll know where to look. Even when we’re discussing something extreme like skydiving, we’re sure to make it accessible for beginners, too. At ZOZI, we believe that if you’re learning new things and expanding your horizons, you’ll grow as an individual—whether you kill it the first time or fall flat.

    What’s the pay? Including a non-paying outlet – if they paid, surely they would’ve mentioned it – is ridiculous and indefensible.

    Hi Sharon,
    Sorry you feel that way. I don’t know what (or whether) ZOZI pays — readers can do that research on their own. Some people who read Travel Writers News are not as advanced in their careers as you are, and appreciate information about even low-paying or non-paying outlets. Please feel free to simply ignore information here that is not useful to you.
    Best regards,
