Course description

Learn how to write about your travels at this course in Sydney.

So you dream of being a Travel Writer...

Travel writing has a long and distinguished history and today is a flourishing independent genre. The digital age has provided increased opportunities for travellers with a literary bent to publish their personal travel experiences online, and while there’s never been more demand for travel writing, there’s also never been more competition. Whatever form you want your travel writing to take: blog, magazine article or book, you need to be equipped with the skills and knowledge to set your writing apart from the pack.

In this 6-week course you will learn how to research and structure your story, provide detail to bring your story to life, discover travel trends and how to write for newspapers, magazines and blogs. You will be inspired by the greats of contemporary travel writing, get plenty of hands-on experience with in-class and external writing assignments and gain valuable insight into what it takes to be a travel writer. You’ll also produce plenty of written work with feedback provided by your tutor.

The following will be covered although the order may be changed:

  • Overview of travel writing
  • Journaling for travel writers
  • Researching your story
  • Bringing your story to life
  • Shaping your story
  • Re-writing and self-editing
  • Resources and getting published.
Outcomes

  • draw on new knowledge and skills to continue on your travel writing journey independently
  • generate new travel stories tailored for specific markets

Please come prepared...
