Ever wondered what it takes to be a travel writer?

This seminar will delve into the major styles, principles and techniques of travel writing, the common mistakes budding travel writers make, the nature of the travel writing industry today, and where (and how) to submit your travel writing for publication.

You will learn

  • some of the techniques travel writers use to immerse readers in their adventures
  • to identify common mistakes that budding travel writers make, and how to avoid them
  • about the travel writing industry today: how it’s changing and evolving
  • where and how to submit pieces for publication.

This workshop develops employment-related skills.
