Curriculum

Think travel writing sounds intriguing? Try it out.

 

Our multi-day itineraries combine the experience of a “press trip”—the chance to experience a destination’s most story-worthy adventures, with insider access to key sources and interesting people—with seminar-style instruction on travel writing and photography.

Topics to be covered include, but aren’t limited to …

 

  • Generating your idea
  • Developing a story angle
  • Interviewing
  • Story formats
  • Basic Associated Press style rules every working writer must know
  • Lending your unique voice and experiences to your stories, blogs or journals 
  • Taking photographs that help you capture a place and sell your piece.
  • Self-publishing options and the role of social media
  • Pitching your idea and selling your piece
  • What “Fam” trips are and how some travel writers enjoy free travel opportunities


While we’ll touch on the above topics in our short seminars, we’ll also teach on location as we practice together in the field.
