At noon on November 1 Dave Fox will present a free class on travel journaling at the Rick Steves travel center at 130 Fourth Avenue in Edmonds, Washington. Having just returned from his appearance at the Wisconsin Book Festival, Dave will help students discover how to unleash their travel journaling potential. As a travel writer, guide for Rick Steves tours, and the author of Getting Lost: Mishaps of an Accidental Nomad andGlobejotting: How to Write Extraordinary Travel Journals (and still have time to enjoy your trip!), Dave is an expert on all things related to travel.
As described at Dave’s website, this “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.”
