We publish original content not published elsewhere before our publication date.

Many of our most popular stories were written by previously unpublished writers, some of whom secured publishing deals from publishers that receive our publicity materials and issues. We publish original stories daily and send a weekly newsletter with exclusive content for subscribers. New contributors and story proposals are welcome.

BonjourParis writers possess insights about France travel and French lifestyle. Our most popular story subjects are: Paris activities and day trips, cafés and restaurants, French wine and vineyards, French lifestyle, hotels, book reviews, cultural activities, food and recipes. We also publish stories about the most charming and historic villages of France.

The most-read stories are written in the active, third-person voice and they guide travelers to the door and through the experience they’ll likely have. It’s important to include practical trip-planning details. Your own photography and video is welcome if you’re handy with a camera.

Expat experiences and observations that note the quirks and joys of life in France are popular with readers.

Photography, illustrations and original art will be considered.

Paris residents: we can assist with invitations to press events, VIP “familiarization” activities and reviewer comps.

Authors: we welcome “meet the writer” interviews and free book promotions for our readers. BonjourParis readers trust our book recommendations and we love promoting books about France to our readers. New books are added to our store daily.

After your story idea has been accepted by our editorial team, an editor will contact you to discuss story assignments. Typical stories are about 800-1000 words in length plus the practical travel information, links and photo captions. We follow the AP style. All stories are fact-checked and edited by our editorial team to maximize online exposure. Photographs may be added by editors in place of submitted photographs.

All writers receive a profile page where they may promote their personal and professional profiles, websites/blogs, which also includes a list of your stories published at BonjourParis. We promote all stories individually via social media marketing.
