LOCAL>> Virtual Class: Don George - Write Your Best Travel Story (via Zoom)

Online workshop on travel writing from one of the best in the business

Six Tuesdays:  January 19 – February 23

Hosted via Zoom • Live • 4:00-7:00pm PT • $495

Class limited to nine attendees

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. Then each participant will present their story idea for discussion and revision, and then write an original travel piece of up to 2,500 words. Each piece will be closely read and discussed in class.

Subsequent classes will allow for revision, discussion, and further refinement of each piece. During the course of the workshop, in addition to individual critiques, we’ll talk about the fine points of structure, pacing, and making your point.

This highly successful class has led to numerous published stories in widely known venues such as the annual Best Travel Writing and Lonely Planet anthologies.

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.
