Have you ever thought of financing your travels while still on the go?
It is now possible with MatadorU, an online education center for travel writers, photographers, and filmmakers.
- MatadorU Travel Writing Course
- MatadorU Travel Photography Course
- Travel Film Program: coming early 2012!
One of the most dynamic elements of MatadorU is the Market Blog. It is an extensive resource involvingboth students and editors who share first hand information on how to best approach specific markets and editors, as well as personal contacts and referrals.
And as an ultimate compliment to the program, increasing numbers of industry standard travel publishers such as AOL, Nile Guide, 10Best and other guidebooks, magazines, and websites are now specifically requesting to have their writing and press trip opportunities published – some of them exclusive to MatadorU students and alumni – at the Market Blog.
Dozens of students and alumni have found their first paid gigs as travel writers this way.
