Get Paid for Your Stories from Abroad


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.

For a sample of what I wrote for them, see my piece on How to Speak Swiss. If anyone has a question about the program, feel free to contact me or leave comment. I'm happy to do another post on this if there's interest.

  1. Hey Chantal,

    This sounds like a really interesting program. It would be great to have such constructive feedback from National Geographic editors.

    Were you able to keep up with your own blogging and writing during your time as a correspondent, or was the program so rigorous that you were mainly writing for Glimpse?

    Thanks!
    Sion

  4. I wish I could do this! We've been talking about moving to England this fall, but plans aren't set so I don't want to apply in case we don't move. What a neat program though! Maybe next year!

  5. Note to all: the National Geographic Glimpse program is changing (it won't be sponsored by NG any more) and the editors I worked with are leaving. This was just announced. The Matador Travel Network will be running the program in the future. I don't know how this will change things but will try to update when I know more.

  6. One more addition: I've been asked by a few readers what kind of writing sample the editors are looking for. Note that the editors of the program are changing, but the essay I submitted to the program that landed me the position for 2009 is linked to on the sidebar of this blog under "Essays about life abroad". It's "The American at Swiss Gardening Boot Camp" piece.
