With the rapid evolution in online communication, travel writing is changing – and changing fast. Today, travel writers are thinking about their brand, their image, their next blog post.

Claire Scobie shows you how to navigate through this new world while crafting compelling stories, giving participants a broad understanding of travel writing in magazines, newspapers, blogs and online.

The workshop covers how to develop an idea and turn it into a polished piece of work, how to craft a story and evoke a sense of place, the use of photographs, revising, structuring and editing.
Supported by Pantera Press.

Duration: 6 hours
Maximum capacity: 16 participants
