Join us for an inspiring and practical study day
Six travel writers discuss their globetrotting adventures and share tips and techniques for writing engaging, interesting and publishable travel writing. Blogging about family travel, founding a travel company to inspire black travellers and writing a Lonely Planet accessible travel guide to Rio de Janeiro: our speakers have made a living from exploring the world and writing about it in their own way.
Whether you’re a travel writing beginner about to start your journey or a seasoned adventurer with stamps filling your passport, learn how to prepare for a trip, think about who you’re writing for and how you might turn your passion for travel writing into a career.
