Writing Workshop

Posted on Friday, 27 April 2012 03:45PM by
Join us on an inspirational day of travel writing at our London Travel Writing Workshop on Saturday 12th May with Gemma Bowes, Travel Editor of the Guardian, and award winning travel writers Rory Maclean and Dea Birkett. Gemma will let you in on the secrets of what she looks for in a travel article. You will also have the opportunity to pitch her an idea.

At our last work, Gemma commissioned straight from the workshop! Here’s what one participant wrote to us: ‘Just to let you know that Gemma has commissioned me to write my piece for The Guardian. Am feeling chuffed to bits. If it wasn't for the workshop....’

Rory Maclean and Dea Birkett will be tutoring on how to construct a traveller’s tale, including practical how-to tips and discovering the writer within you.

Whether you want to become a travel writer of features or books, or just improve your writing, the Travel Writing Workshop will set you on the path. We love to boast about workshop participants’ successes. Here’s just one -

‘I followed your advice and it has opened a huge number of doors, created some amazing opportunities and is enabling me to fulfil my childhood dream of combing my love of travel with writing. Your workshop was without doubt the starting point; your experienced advice, kind words, humorous and supportive encouragement.’

To find out more, just go to our website at and click on ‘What Will I Achieve?’.

You can even make a weekend of it. Why not join us on Sunday 13th May for the Travel Writing Masterclass – a day dedicated to your travel writing, including one-on-one sessions with Rory and Dea. The aim is, by the end of the day, you will have a perfect piece of travel writing ready for publication.

The Travel Writing Workshop costs just £125 for the full day, including refreshments. Combine it with the Travel Writing Masterclass for just £225 for the full weekend – a saving of £25 on the individual costs.
