Travel Writing Workshop @ Soho REI – (Feb. 10) NYC
Date: February 10, 2016, 6:30pm – 8:30pm EST
Location: Soho REI, New York
RSVP: Register here
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:
-Participate in two interactive activities designed to get our creative juices flowing
-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, participants 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.
