Travel writing comes in a variety of forms. Maybe you are a travel blogger, or perhaps you jot down ideas on a coffee-stained receipt. If you are looking for some advice to improve your writing, you might want to check out Dave Fox’s free audio workshop. Dave Fox used to work for Rick Steves. I bought his book a few years ago, and I still revisit it from time to time to refresh my perspective. The first 20 minutes are about journal writing and the last half is about publishing travel writing. Check out the blurb below for more information.
“Free Audio Workshop: From Personal Journaling to Professional Travel Writing
Writecamp is a series of casual, half-hour workshops offered each year at the Singapore Writers Festival. Speakers present fast-paced talks on writing-related themes. Attendees can choose from a couple of different topics in each time slot and are encouraged to drift from room to room to see what they like.
This year, I talked about travel writing I initially debated whether I should cover travel journaling or more polished travel writing. In the end, in the frenetic spirit of Writecamp, I decided to cover both – scrunching what is usually several hours of material into 30 high-energy minutes.
I recorded the session and I’m making it available for free! You can download it from iTunes or listen to it on Globejotting.com.”
