New member question !

Hi, my name is salwa, i’m new matador contributor, i want to ask about the marketplace, when i apply to one what should i do ? is it necessary to send the story that they want at once or just introduce myself? also i’m new writer so i have no published work yet, what should i do when they ask for samples for my published work? is it necessary?

sorry for my long topic, please help me if you can, thank you.

Hey Salwa,

Always read the instructions in each call for submission. What I do is I introduce myself very briefly and send¬† 1 paragraph of the idea I’m pitching. You can include links to sites that have published you. Hope that helps!

Thanks for this question Salwa, I’m also new and trying to figure out how Matador works.¬† Does anyone know if they still offer writing classes on Matador?
