    Do you have an amazing, inspirational, or tragic tarantula story? Would you like to raise awareness, help people going through a similar situation, or warn others about an issue?

    We write for major US and UK publications. We’ll pay you to share your story. Please get in touch by emailing me here: ailbhe.macmahon@swns.com

    Is it spam? There is a website https://swns.com/ and it is tarantula related so I guess it's up to people to make their own decisions.

    I’d be reluctant to tell my bite story in case it was turned into a tarantulas are monsters episode...
