We love featuring the work of passionate content creators from around the world. From talented travel writers to photographers and videographers, we’ve built Departful as a platform for featuring excellent storytelling in all its forms.

We set out in 2012 as a group of friends, all avid travelers looking for an outlet to share our experiences. Wanting to bring thoughtful, actionable and thorough travel content to readers looking to make travel plans, we created Departful. And since its inception, we’ve continued to focus on publishing content that adds value to our readers’ travels while inspiring them to see the world.

Over the last five years, we’ve built a tight-knit community of contributors and collaborators from London to Kathmandu, from Sydney to Saigon, who have played a major part in making Departful what it is today. Many of our contributors have their own publications or freelance businesses and use our platform to leverage their personal initiatives. In return, we strive to reach the largest audience for our contributors’ content.

In the past year, we’ve launched an online magazine, Prostly, which focuses exclusively on beer and travel. Each monthly issues features incredible locations around the world and the beers, bars, and brewers that call them home. Like Departful, Prostly has amassed a network of talented contributors whose passion for both beer and travel make it a rapidly growing publication. We have other brands in the pipeline launching within the next six months, which will provide additional opportunity for contributors across our content network.
