Travel Writing
Watkins College
Sat, Jul 22 10:00 am


Sometimes a trip is more than just a trip; it’s a transformative experience that the traveler must put into words. This workshop is designed to examine different types of travel writing, from basic where-to, how-to stories to creative, first-person essays that reflect on the inner journey that arises from a special trip, location or destination. Students will discuss a variety of contemporary travel writers and their techniques and begin to transform their own travel experiences into compelling, true stories. Instruction will include generating ideas for travel writing, how to gather information for a travel story, how to prepare for a trip that will provide material for a travel essay, and what travel editors look for in the stories they publish. The workshop is open to all levels of experience.
