For beginners interested in learning the basics of travel-writing and writers looking to sharpen their skills, this workshop will help participants experiment with various forms of travel writing, from news items to round-ups, reviews, and travel stories. We’ll begin by examining work in major newspaper and magazine travel sections, as well as travel publications and websites—all with an eye on each outlet’s specialized formats. Workshop participants will research an outlet that fits his or her particular geographic niche or interest (Kenya, Iceland, New England, family travel, cruises, spa, food, adventure travel, etc.) and craft a pitch that adheres to that publications’ format and style. From there we’ll discuss how to seek publication and each participant will have an opportunity to workshop a pitch/query letter.
