Thurber House Adult Writing Workshop: So You Want to Be a Travel Writer?

April 23, 2018 6:00 pm @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

MONDAY, APRIL 23
So You Want to Be a Travel Writer?
Instructor: Rich Warren

If you love to write and also love to travel, writing travel stories for newspapers, magazines, or online sites may be a way to pick up some extra cash while combining your two passions. Learn how to find potential markets and how to entice editors with story ideas. We will discuss techniques for writing a query letter that will get noticed, as well as tips about crafting the piece once you’ve landed the assignment. Come to class with a good travel story idea and we’ll spend time drafting a short query letter to an editor in hopes that you’ll land the assignment.

INSTRUCTOR: Rich Warren has been both a travel editor and travel writer, working in editorial positions for 18 years at Ohio Magazine and at Country Living before leaving in 2016 to pursue full-time travel writing. His stories have appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Dallas Morning News, Cleveland Plain Dealer, National Geographic Traveler, Saturday Evening Post, AAA Home and Away, AAA Highroads, Long Weekends, American Way, and others.

Adult Writing Workshops are held on Mondays from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at Thurber Center, 91 Jefferson Avenue. Workshops are $50 each, or $45 if you choose more than one workshop. You must be 18 to participate. All registrations are non-refundable.
