Don George wrote the book on travel writing. Literally. And as the co-founder and chairman of the acclaimed Book Passage Travel Writers and Photographers Conference, he knows a thing or two about teaching travel writing.

Don is returning to TBEX to teach this small group travel writing workshop, and we open registration for it today.

During the workshop, Don  will focus on the art and craft of travel writing: how to find, shape and build a successful travel story. You’ll learn what can make your travel story stand out from the crowd.  He’ll cover some of the practicalities of being a travel writer in the field – what to do when you land in a place, how to move through it, how to process what are you looking for.

The workshop will be a mix of lectures and in-the-field writing exercises and discussion.

Don’s goal – and ours – is for you to come away from this workshop with a clear sense of your options for travel publishing, how to construct a compelling travel story, what it takes to break into different media and how to move from one level to the next, and how to apprehend and evoke a place most effectively as a travel writer.

This small group session is limited to a maximum of 10 participants, and is open to registered TBEX Asia 2015 attendees only. Add on workshop fee is $200.
