If I submit a story, will you definitely publish it?
Our communications team chooses all of the stories that appear in the Couchsurfing news/blog. Depending on your story, we may contact you for more information and write the story ourselves, or we may edit the story you submitted.
We may not choose to publish your story for a variety of reasons. We do our best to publish as many as possible. But we receive many, many submissions.
If you publish my story, will it appear exactly as I wrote it?
Not always. We usually edit stories we publish for length, grammar, quality and other factors. Please don't submit your story unless you're willing to let us edit it.
I have a great story, but I'm not a very good writer. Do I need to try to write it myself?
No. Send us a message with your idea. If we'd like to feature the story in the news, one of our writers will contact you for more information and use that to create an article.
Can I be tagged when you share my story?
Yes! If you would like to be tagged if we share your story, please include a link to your Facebook profile and your Twitter and Instagram usernames, if you have them.
