We admit it - it's pretty fun to write for ZAlebs - we get to follow the lives, adventures and mis-adventures of our favorite ZAlebs -

we get to watch Trevor crush Cassper in FIFA - which we are sure you did as well -

but we get to call it work - and actually get paid for it.

Everyone's been worried about Pearl - talking to their friends about it - but again, for us, that's nothing but work.

So, we are looking for people to write for us - we need more fun content, about celebrities, fashion and beauty and also for something new up our sleeve, music.

Since you .......maybe......have a little time on your hands, here's what we are going to do ---

We love our friends at Greenall's Gins - have you been joining the Virtual Happy Hours? They have been a blast so far and more are coming - we're going to put together a gift basket with some of their products, t-shirts oh, and -

2,500 ZAR cash in it :)

Or, something fun about music, what are you listening to, who are you excited to see perform once lockdown is over, who is SA's next great rapper, hip hop artist?

2.   Send the article along with any images (have to be royalty-free) links etc 
      in  word document to [email protected] 

3.    Our editors will look and review every one - and if we publish your article,          you will get paid - the amount is dependent on how long, how original and how strong the article.

4. Every article that is published before the end of April or the end of lockdown, whichever is later, is eligible to win the contest which will be judged by our editorial team.


Not all articles will be published.

Our editorial staff will be sole judge of whether an article is going to be published.

Multiple writers might write about the same story - we will pick the best.
