Travel writing lets us traverse the world on paper 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.

Travel writing requires you to pack along a sense of adventure, a journalist’s eye, and a storyteller’s flair.  In our courses, you will learn about the full spectrum of travel writing—articles, memoir, essay, blogs, guidebooks—as well as such writing craft elements as description, structure, voice, and angles. You will also learn how and where 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.

Interested in Advanced Travel Writing?
What if you want to continue with travel writing? If you're working on travel-related memoir (book-length or short pieces), take Memoir I or II. If you're working on travel-related articles, take Article I or II.

Travel Writing | Intensive
 

How much can you learn in one day? Plenty. As you will discover in one of our One-Day Intensives in New York City.

The One-Day Intensives are seven-hour crash courses. You are immersed in a topic through a mixture of brief lectures that hit the high-points and writing exercises that let you immediately try your hand at what you’ve just learned.

The Intensives provide an excellent overview of their fields, ideal for both the beginner and someone wanting a quick refresher course. Arrive in the morning with a desire to learn. By the end of the day, you’ll be a more knowledgeable and skilled writer.

Students come from all over the world for our One-Day Intensives. You're likely to be sitting near NYC locals as well as people from such far-flung places as Texas, Egypt, and Japan. (NYC Hotel Information.)

Intensives are open for writers of any level.

We offer an online version of an Intensive, a three-week Character course.

We also offers two and four-week seminars, including: How to Get Published, Hit Send: Publishing Short Nonfiction, How to Blog, and Nonfiction Book Proposal.

Students may reschedule a One-Day Intensive one time.



Topics include: travel articles, travel memoir/essay, angles, description, selling your work
