Since traveling has become more accessible, it is now possible for us to set foot in the 81 provinces of the Philippines, as well as reach the seven continents all over the world.
Instead of just creating a travel diary or journal to save your memories, why not turn your vacations into travel stories? Find out how at the upcoming workshop of Writer’s Block Philippines, “Travel the Write Way” happening on March 12, 2016, Saturday, 1:00 to 6:00PM in Fully Booked, Bonifacio Global City.
Facilitating the workshop will be Ana P. Santos and Nikka Sarthou-Lainez, two freelance writers who put up Writer’s Block Philippines in 2010, an organization dedicated to empowering writers, communicators, and creative entrepreneurs.
According to Santos, a journalist who focuses on women and gender issues, “Whether you’re an aspiring writer or already have a blog, you’ll definitely get helpful tips on how to craft better travel-related features. You don’t have to be published to join the workshop, although already published writers are welcome to join as well.”
Santos is a regular columnist in Rappler and Working Mom and as the 2014 Persephone Miel Fellow for the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, her work has been published in The Atlantic and The Washington Post.
“Simply stringing words together is not enough, which is why we’ll discuss essential tips on how to create more engaging travel stories. We’ll be sharing our own experiences and some examples to help guide you,” said Sarthou-Lainez, a lifestyle writer.
Sarthou-Lainez was chosen as one of the five Asian representatives for Moleskine’s Modern Nomads in 2012. She is currently a Contributing Editor in Smile magazine and she also writes for various online and print publications.
The duo both left their respective careers to pursue their passion to become full-time freelance writers and put up Writer’s Block Philippines in 2010.
