Meet AC Rockstar Matthew Lubin

In Interviews on February 20, 2010 at 3:18 am

As one of AC’s Featured Travel Contributors, Matthew Lubin has been busy writing about destinations in the Far East, medicine, film, movies and topics about English as a foreign language.

This talented writer, editor and academic writing professor has lived in Southern China and has published work in The Aroostock Review, Ink Collective and other publications.

I caught up with this AC Rockstar to find out how he found AC, and why he enjoys publishing here:

SK: How long did it take you to become an AC addict?

ML: I wouldn’t consider myself an AC addict as I don’t use it that frequently. When I first started using AC, I was working in China and figured it was a good way to make a few extra bucks for when I returned to the states. As I found other venues for my work, I used AC with less frequency, but always went back every now and again to see what was going on.

SK: Why have you stuck with AC for so long?

ML: AC has been a consistent purchaser of my work. While I’d prefer to sell my work for more money, at least I know I have this site to fall back on. It also helped build my confidence as a travel writer, which got me my first freelance gig with a tour book publisher.

SK: Out of all of the topics you write about, how do you decide which ones to develop or focus on in any given month?

ML: Most of my articles are about my travels because it’s what I enjoy writing about. I have never used AC’s suggested topics or calls for content. If I find a topic that interests me I’ll write about it.

SK: If you could start your AC writing career over again, what is the one thing you would do differently? Read the rest of this entry »
