LOCAL>> Online Class: Don George - Write Your Best Travel Story
Online, 7-week creative writing workshop, emphasis on publishable travel story craft
Seven Tuesdays: August 3 – September 14
This class is patterned on a graduate school creative writing workshop, with emphasis on the craft of writing a publishable travel story.
In this workshop, participants will conceive, pitch, and write an original travel piece of up to 2,500 words. This may be based on a recent close-to-home travel experience or on a memory of a past trip. In the workshop, we’ll begin by closely reading, discussing, and critiquing examples of excellent travel writing.
Don George is the author of The Way of Wanderlust: The Best Travel Writing of Don George and of Lonely Planet’s Guide to Travel Writing and the editor of ten anthologies, including A Moveable Feast, The Kindness of Strangers, Better Than Fiction, and An Innocent Abroad. George is Editor at Large for National Geographic Traveler, where he writes feature articles and the monthly Trip Lit column. He is also Editor of BBC Travel‘s literary travel column, Chance Encounters.
