"The instructor provided an invaluable insider's point of view…. This Gotham class allowed me to take part in dialogues with people from Croatia to Washington State, on topics from an encounter with Mother Theresa to peddling a pedicab in California. I loved the disparate points of view and the extravagant variety of travel experiences that were shared online!"

"The course was one of the most memorable journeys that I have taken."
- Rebecca Eder

"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."
- Gail Overstreet

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.
