About This Class

Great travel writing has the power to transport the reader into the world of the story and make them feel they are right there with the author.

Join experienced travel writer and wanderer Christopher Clark for an immersive class that will help you to capture a strong sense of place in your writing.

Christopher will take you through a few examples of excellent narrative travel writing. He’ll then encourage you to get out and get beneath the skin of the place that you live in, and write and share your observations and experiences in the form of a narrative travel article.

In this class you’ll learn essential skills including:

  • How to engage all your senses when exploring a place
  • How to avoid lazy and tired travel writing cliches
  • How to create a compelling experiential travel narrative
  • How to share your travel experiences with the world

This class is useful for writers of all levels. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or an avid amateur, you’ll be better equipped to put the world around you into words.
