Freelance Submission Guidelines
Mexico News Daily accepts pitches and submissions (800-1200 words) from freelancers covering topics related to travel, culture, history and the arts in Mexico. We are also interested in personal experiences of foreigners living and/or working in Mexico. Stories should be informative, well-researched, thought-provoking and should deepen the reader’s perspective on the country. If you are writing about a well-known tourist destination or cultural tradition, your story should provide some fresh perspective or new angle on the subject. Pitches for visual features and interviews are also welcome.
MND is the premier source for English-language news in Mexico. We have 1 million monthly views on our website and a robust mailing list of over 90,000 subscribers receiving a daily newsletter. We have a small team of staff writers dedicated to news coverage and are looking to expand our travel, lifestyle and culture sections for readers who want to be savvy and well-informed about the diversity and richness of Mexico. We pay 3 pesos MXN per word for 1200 words maximum.
