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.
