Travel Writing Seminar
When In Manila, oftentimes, when you travel to another country or visit one of the Philippines’ many islands, the place becomes not just a tourist destination, but an object of deep affection—a source of fierce pride, an overwhelming attachment, or a wellspring of memories and inspiration.
Vacations and beautiful places bring out a multitude of emotions—ranging from adrenaline rushes, nostalgia, awe, sometimes even humility at the majesty of nature when we see what she has created, or at the sheer brilliance of the human mind which has created many man-made wonders.
If you’ve ever traveled to another place, felt this way and wanted to write about it, “Travel the Write Way” will help you get started on another journey—one where you can turn your vacations into travel articles and immortalize your memories on print.
Travel Writing Seminar
When In Manila, whether you’re just starting out as a feature writer or have been published in the past and want to foray into travel writing, “Travel the Write Way” will teach you all the basics to help you get your travel pieces published.
In this one-day workshop on April 28 (Saturday), 10am-6pm, we’ll dissect the elements of travel features and what makes them unique, then we’ll look at the different building blocks of great travel pieces and show you how YOU can write one yourself. And thanks to the collective experience of our editor-founders, you’ll get inside tips, tricks, and writing techniques gleaned from over 20 years of writing, traveling, getting to know people and cultures, and making editors and readers happy. As always, we will end the workshop with a writing session and a critique of your work so that you can get instant feedback on your draft.
Whether you’re a veteran of press trips or just love to travel during your off-work days, this workshop will teach you how to create unique story angles that will make you stand out from other writers in the pack.
The workshop will be conducted by Writer’s Block Philippines, a group of editors and communicators who have collectively had more than 20 years of experience in writing for publications and for a wide variety of corporate clients.
