I’ll be teaching Travel Writing for Fun and Profit at the Willamette Writer’s Conference in Portland on August 3.
Here’s the rundown:
Ever dreamt of becoming a travel writer? This workshop will help you learn to think like a travel writer, pitch ideas to editors, break in to the travel market, and bring place and experience to life on the page. Be prepared for hands-on writing activities.
The WW annual conference is a great time and very productive. I attended many years before teaching the past two.
I’ll also be presenting to the Willamette Writers Coast Branch in Newport on November 19.
The Oregon Coast chapter of Willamette Writers offers its Writers-on-Writing workshops on the third Tuesday of each month from 7-8:30 p.m. in the McEntee Room of the Newport Public Library.
I’m not sure what I’ll workshop yet! Maybe travel writing again, or perhaps general magazine writing from the point of view of an editor? Or we could do a memoir class. Requests?
Hope to see some of you at these events.
