Travel Writing Workshop in Tel Aviv
This workshop is designed for both frequent travelers as well as those of us who don’t always get to hop on a plane, but absolutely love to explore. Writing creates a space for us to process our experiences in a way that we hadn’t before, and uncover new insights. We’ll read compelling pieces, enjoy interactive activities, and learn how to process our own experiences on paper.
In this workshop we will:
- Understand our urge to write
- Explore some of the best travel writing
- Uncover insights from our past travel experiences
- Capture the sights, tastes, smells, and sounds that stimulate us
- Feel the impact our words have on other travelers
After completing workshops, women have written for major publications, launched their own blogs, or continued to write in their journals. Others have simply enjoyed trying something new. At the end of the session there will be an opportunity to learn about how to get your travel writing published.

*On July 29, we are running a Fearless Living Workshop in Tel Aviv. Sign up for both workshops for 100 NIS. Interested? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I came out of it a different person than I went in…[Jaclyn] made us linger in our discomfort long enough to compel us to make a change. In fact, she had to relinquish control in order for it to be a catalyst. That’s a mark of a great teacher.” – Stephen Elliot
“The workshop provided a safe and inspiring space to think about my own writing, and hear from other travelers and writers. I came away with some concrete tools, and an idea or two for future pieces!” – Rachel Romesburg Rice
“I love traveling. And I love writing. So when a friend told me about the Pink Pangea writing workshop, I went right away. And it opened a new sphere of writing for me.” – Britta Kollberg
