That's where we need your help

Our mission is to raise the quality of media coverage by providing local contacts to journalists around the globe. In order to reach our goal, we need to lay an important foundation: Hostwriter is looking for members in South America and Sub-Saharan Africa, where international correspondents are scarce and where we don’t have many members yet, as well.

Only then can Hostwriter fulfill its mission of connecting journalists across all borders, worldwide.

Launch an outreach campaign to connect with journalists in South America and Sub-Saharan Africa where we don't have many members yet.

Produce training material as a step-by-step introduction into collaborative journalism in order to spread this method more widely.

Train new ambassadors in South America and Sub-Saharan Africa in collaborative journalism to expand the Hostwriter network in the region.

Stories cross borders – so journalists should, too.

Hostwriter is a global network for media professionals. We connect journalists to easily seek and offer help, whether in the form of story collaboration, local advice or even accommodation. All journalists provide work samples by way of professional verification. Membership is free of charge.
