"I learned the real dirt on travel writing, such as the myths and inside information you don't see in general travel writing books. Travel writing books I've gotten at the library tend to blue-sky the occupation, and it was gratifying to know the reality behind this profession."

Travel writing lets us traverse the world on page or screen, journeying everywhere from the cobblestone streets of Amsterdam to the brilliant-white beaches of Zanzibar. Reading of travel can provide the inspiration and information to set us in motion, or it can transport foreign locales right into our homes. Spin the globe to anyplace you like.
 
Travel writing requires you to pack along a sense of adventure, a journalist’s eye, and a storyteller’s flair. Here you will learn about the full spectrum of travel writing—articles, memoir, essay, blogs, guidebooks—as well as writing craft and how to market your work.
 
Whether you seek to write about places near or far, we’ll show you how to turn the world into words.

Memoir I or II – for travel-related memoirs
