Contribute to Practical Motoring

We want you to contribute to Practical Motoring.

Since 2013, the Practical Motoring writers have tried to take the nonsense out of motoring reviews and advice, and make our content as useful as possible. And we want you to become a part of the team by contributing your own articles to help fellow readers.

Anyone can contribute to Practical Motoring and have their work published alongside some of Australia’s (and beyond) finest automotive writers. By sharing your opinion or news with thousands of other practical motorists you’ll be making a difference to car owners in this country… and, who knows? This could be your first step towards becoming a professional automotive writer.

What sort of content are we looking for?

Readers Write section is where you can write a review of your own car, explain something, or put forth an opinion on any automotive related topic you’re either passionate about or have a good understanding of.  We’re always happy to hear from readers who’ve ‘been there and done that’ and now have the story to share.

Before submitting an article, please review our WRITING GUIDELINES and be aware that not all articles will be published.
