Stories cross borders - and journalists should, too.

Our mission is to raise the quality of media coverage by providing local contacts to journalists around the globe. Today, major stories span across international borders and independent quality-journalism needs to reflect this. We see cross-border journalism as a tool to overcome national bias and prejudice, ultimately contributing towards better informed, more accountable and democratic societies.

That’s where we need your support.

In order to reach our goal, we need to lay an important foundation: Hostwriter is looking for members in South America and Sub-Saharian Africa where international correspondents are scarce and where we also don’t have many members yet. Only then can Hostwriter fulfill its mission of connecting journalists across all borders, worldwide.

Hostwriter. Collaborate with journalists worldwide.

Hostwriter connects journalists to easily seek and offer help, whether in the form of story collaboration, local advice or accommodation. Since our launch in May 2014, over 3.000 colleagues from more than 120 countries have used the platform for journalistic collaborations.
