Submission guidelines

We welcome submissions for blog posts that reflect the mission of Tourisme Montréal, which is to promote Montréal as a premier tourism destination for leisure and business travellers from non-local markets.

Before submitting

Before submitting story ideas, please explore the blog to become familiar with our editorial style and with the type of subject matter we cover. Do a few searches before you pitch to see if we have already covered the topic you have in mind. Don’t forget: We look at the quality of the writing in the pitch to give us an indication of the quality of writing we can expect in the final product.

Making the pitch

  • Send a working title and a brief summary for each story idea.
  • Include a short bio and links to your blog, website and/or relevant social media accounts, as well as links to published work.
  • Pitches for photo essays and ideas for illustrations and infographics are also welcome.

Content guidelines:

  • The content should be original and not published previously elsewhere.
  • The content should present Montréal attractions, events, places or people that are representative of the city and of interest to visitors.
  • The tone and manner should be friendly, helpful, accessible and positive; feel free to add touches of humour.
  • The content should be accurate (please fact check) and should not misrepresent the topic covered.
  • The content should not be self-promotional or link to commercial offers.
  • Articles should be spell checked, proofread and must include an SEO-friendly title when submitted.
  • Articles should be approximately 500 words in length and should not exceed 750 words.
  • Articles should be written in the third person (or in the second person for instructional text, like itineraries), unless you have expertise in a specific field that makes a first-person voice more enriching for our readers.
  • We reserve the right to edit articles for spelling, grammar, flow, etc., and to modify titles and add subheadings.
  • All articles in English will be translated into French and possibly other languages, always respecting the spirit of the original piece.

Please submit your story ideas to montreal@mtl.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
