THE GLIMPSE CORRESPONDENTS PROGRAM is currently accepting applications from emerging writers, journalists, photographers, and filmmakers who are working, living, studying, or volunteering outside of their home countries for a period of at least 10 weeks. This is an excellent opportunity for students or recent graduates to develop a portfolio of published work with the guidance, feedback, and support of experienced editors.
Each fall and spring, the Glimpse editorial team selects 10 Glimpse Correspondents. These correspondents are expected to produce two long-form feature stories and/or photo essays, and in return receive one-on-one support from professional editors, free tuition to MatadorU, career training in travel writing and photography, a $600 stipend, and publication on Matador Network and Glimpse.org.
Matador Network is the world’s largest independent travel magazine. With millions of monthly visitors, Matador is a key place to get attention from a wide and enthusiastic audience. Powered by Matador Network, the Glimpse Correspondent’s Program offers a unique, funded opportunity to learn to develop and publish quality, complex long-form travel stories and to establish a dedicated readership.
If you’d like more information on this topic, or to submit an application, please visit the Glimpse website. You can read the stories of previous correspondents at Matador Network.
Applications for the Fall 2012 session are open until July 30, 2012.
