As some of you know, I was a National Geographic Glimpse Correspondent in the Spring of 2009. For those who are also interested in this opportunity, the application to be a Fall 2010 correspondent goes live today and the final deadline to apply is June 15.
A few facts about the program:
-You must be between the ages of 18-34 to apply.
-You must be living abroad for at least 10 weeks during the fall.
-You must commit time to a rigorous editorial process (The editors are tough. But they truly make your work better.)
-To apply, you will need a writing sample and samples of your photography. (I think I improved my photography as much as my writing during my time as a correspondent).
As a correspondent, you'll write a feature story, a how-to guide, create insider tips, a slideshow, and keep a blog on the glimpse.org website. Like many publications, they no longer have a magazine, all is online.
