Home /  Courses And Programs / Write the Journey: Introduction to the Travel Narrative

This writing course is dedicated to the voice of the traveler. Bring your memories, recollections, journals and notes from journeys you've taken. We'll use in-workshop exercises and writing in real time to explore story possibilities and promises. Short stories, poems, essays, personal narrative, creative non-fiction -- the style is as wide-open as the spaces we travel. Think Hemingway’s "Paris," Henry Miller’s "Greece," Elizabeth Gilbert’s "Eat, Pray Love," and the travel essays of Pico Iyer, Jan Morris, Paul Theroux. Later sessions will include read and critique of manuscripts. This course is for all levels of writers and experiences of travelers, whether you desire to write toward publication or create keepsake memories to share with friends and family.

Note: This course does not cover hotel or tour recommendations, where to eat, costs, etc.
