The Glimpse Correspondents Program deadline has been pushed back from November 20th to December 20th, which means that you now have one more month to get an application in – you can find the application online on the Glimpse.org site.
The program is for talented writers and photographers with a passion for storytelling and a knack for finding truly unique stories. It is open to anyone who will be working, volunteering, or studying outside of their home country for at least 10 weeks between January and June. Correspondents receive the following benefits:
- $600 stipend
- Professional editorial support
- Career training in travel writing and photography
- Publication on Matador and Glimpse.org
Glimpse Correspondents work closely with editors to develop a carefully crafted portfolio of published work. Throughout the editorial process, Correspondents receive critical feedback on their writing and photography and learn how to develop ideas from initial queries and drafts into compelling, publishable long form pieces.
The Correspondents Program offers the opportunity to get into the thick of the editorial process: to see how stories are developed and crafted; to engage in dialogue about writing, editing, and storytelling; and to consider one’s work from fresh, critical perspectives.
You can read more about the program on the Correspondents Program website.
