Working with journalists from across the world can lead to well-researched and in-depth stories. But how do you find the right peers to collaborate with? 

Polish journalist Piotr Drabik has written a guide to setting up a global team. He suggests asking yourself some key questions before beginning, like whether you work well with others and what your interests are. 

Drabik writes that Facebook groups, the Society of Freelance Journalists' Slack channel and the Hostwriter website are great places to look for fellow international journalists. 

"Everybody in your team needs to know what the final goal of the project is. Writing a common article in a few weeks, or doing a long-term investigation? Answers in each choice decide your next steps in setting up your team," writes Drabik.
