Class Title: How to Write Extraordinary Travel Journals
(And Still Have Time to Enjoy Your Trip!)
(Formerly “Writing the Inner Journey”)
Recommended in the Wall Street Journal
Class Description: Every journey has two parallel experiences — the external, in which we observe the world around us, and the internal, in which we visit new places within ourselves. “Writing the Inner Journey” is a class in self-discovery through travel journaling. With foreign surroundings as a backdrop, you’ll learn to tap your deeper emotions and create vivid travelogues for yourself and others. Simple but powerful exercises will help you discover your unique voice as a travel writer. You’ll explore different journaling techniques to find the style that’s right for you, and learn ways to overcome one of the biggest challenges in travel journaling simply finding time to write when there is so much else to do! Whether you’re writing for yourself or publication, whether your explorations take you around the block or around the world, this class will help you tune in to your inner journey. You’ll travel and write with exciting new insight. For related articles and exercises, please see the online version.
Take this class and you could soon be winning awards for your travel writing, like Margaret Hopkins, who recently won the Getting Lost travel writing contest!
