What are we looking for?

News and culture events are typically covered in-house, but we are always looking for fresh feature articles and longer reported pieces that align with our readers' interests. These include interviews with people from the expat communities, a deep dive into cultural rifts and the challenges of living in Czechia as a foreigner or first-person essays and op-eds sharing personal experiences.

How to submit?

  • Please send your developed story pitch (you may send multiple pitches) or a completed article to be considered on speculation to editor@expats.cz.
  • Unless you are applying for an advertised permanent position with us do not send your CV. A short email introduction that summarizes your past experience and links to your work is sufficient. If you do not hear back from us within 2 weeks, your story was not for us and you may pitch again.
  • NOTE: We require all writers who work with us to have a Czech Živnostenský list. Unpaid submissions do not require a Živnostenský list.

Due to the high volume of inquiries received, we can't respond to each individual submission. If you submit a pitch and do not hear back from us within 2 weeks, your story was not for us and you may submit again.
