Learn how to turn your travel adventures, whether local or international, into published essays for newspapers, magazines, websites or your own blog. Professional travel writer Stacia Friedman will show you how it is done, from writing your first draft to submitting a polished travel essay with lively descriptions, dialogue and photos. Each session will tackle another aspect of travel writing, including: developing a unique voice, structuring your essay, knowing your audience, and balancing details with creating a mood. We will also read and critique a variety of published travel essays. Stacia will share how to find publication guidelines, and write pitch letters that will help you succeed. By the end of the workshop, you will have written and submitted a travel essay for publication.
