Write for us

Ever imagined yourself in a dark corner of a bookshop with a steaming coffee and a typewriter, absorbed in producing stellar content for a city of expectant readers?

Unfortunately we can’t promise you a typewriter. But writing for REDSTAR will get you much more involved in the city, help you delve deeper into topics you love, give you work experience (if you need it) and give you access to the great network of acquaintances, professionals, and businesses that REDSTAR has built in Qingdao.

Whether your interests lie in music, art, eating, drinking, dancing, travel, opinion pieces, humour, sport, education, science, home life, childcare …the list is endless. If you want to read about it, we want to publish it. We publish a wide range of content, not just standard articles: recipes, artwork, poetry, bucket lists, comic strips, how-to manuals, photography journals, fashion pieces.

Contributions are paid; no experience is required.

Drop an email to ellie@redstarworks.com or teodora@redstarworks.com to get started.

If you don’t know what to write, we can also provide suggestions. Get in touch!
