IBWM hasn’t won multiple awards by accident and we haven’t reached millions of readers in over 150 countries for nothing.
IBWM wants you
IBWM has always been a collaborative project. We've collaborated with over 700 talented writers, authors, journalists and bloggers that have contributed regular articles or one-off guest pieces. If you enjoy writing, IBWM is here for you to share your stories. No experience is necessary. We don’t need your CV.
What should I write about?
Football and assorted culture - our doors are open to well written articles on anything you like. Articles should be 1,000 words minimum and the more offbeat, the better. We’ll link your site, blog, book or Twitter on anything published. IBWM is part of the Guardian Sports Network and we work closely with World Soccer Magazine too. By writing for IBWM, your work could be featured on these world renowned website.
I'm not a writer, can I be featured?
Of course! Whilst long-form, written articles are our bread and butter, we love to feature everything from designers, illustrators, photographers and more. Our Subculture pages are full of inspirational creatives who are passionate about the beautiful game. Got a similar project? Get in touch below.
Will I be paid for my submission?
Whilst we would love to pay every single one of our contributors, we sadly can't. IBWM is a not-for-profit passion project and as such we are unable to pay people for their submissions. We make zilch from the site and run it in our spare time. We all have real jobs and IBWM is a labor of love for all of us. If you're as passionate about telling the stories that make the game beautiful as we are, you'll understand.
