Thank you for your interest in partnering with Books and Bao, and in working with us as writers.
Born while we were living in South Korea, Books and Bao is a travel, literature, and culture website which explores the books, bookish places, food, history, art, and politics of a country. We work alongside publishers, brands, hotels, and local tour agencies to bring our readers the most intimate local experiences possible. Ethical tourism is always at the forefront of our mind and we always prefer that anyone we partner with feels the same.
We were the Arts and Culture finalists in the UK Blog Awards 2019 and have experienced rapid growth since we started at the outset of 2018.
We wholly believe in learning as much about a culture as possible before travelling, and this feeds into our writing. Above all, we believe in storytelling, and you’ll notice that all of our articles are brimming with intimate detail and personal experiences. We’re native English speakers and have spent significant time in the places we write about. We’re also both freelance journalists (you can view our portfolios here) meaning we’re used to working to deadline and producing consistently high-quality work.
Our readers are primarily interested in art, culture, and literature, and are all travellers at heart. For detailed information on the brands, tourism boards, and publishers we’ve already worked with, just get in touch.
