I’ve responded to Marketplace posts and have had three Matador articles posted so far and I’m working on three more. The first two were on DC and MD and the third was on living in Japan. I’m looking forward to more opportunities as well as a press trip :).

I recently got my first paid publication on Travioor through Marketplace lead. It was my first attempt at using the Marketplace and I look forward to more opportunities through Marketplace in future. Keeping my fingers crossed for a press trip 🙂

Hi everyone. Well done and congratulations on your stories. I am new here and still struggling to find my feet. For submitting an article for the Matador Marketplace, do I do it via email to as specified in the post, or do I use the Creators Community? 

The Marketplace post says email, but the guidelines says Creators Community. I am somewhat lost. Thanks in advance for your help…
