Journalist Support HUB

A Members-only Guided Community for Journalists and Travel Writers of ALL LEVELS

Join five-time award-winning freelance journalist and travel writer Joan Mead-Matsui in the “HUB.” 


I created this community to fill a gap that existed on the web. We all need hand-holding from time to time. The HUB is a personalized experience where you can be part of a world-wide group and reach out for advice if you choose or soak up the content from the sidelines.  

Your $49.00 subscription will get you the support and technical assistance you need to create compelling and engaging articles. Your confidence and skill level will soar to a new level of outstanding accomplishment! Pay monthly or sign on for a year at a discounted rate.
