Testimonial

""What an inspiring weekend in Brussels! Emma covers everything

from structuring articles, to working with PRs and getting published. It’s a unique opportunity to get an honest insight into an industry that can seem mysterious when starting out. The course is hard work, with a lot to learn in a relatively short amount of time, but Emma’s style makes it fun, easy to ask questions and there’s even a quick break for waffles! I’d recommend this workshop to any aspiring travel writer looking to take the next step in their career. I left with a clear plan of what to do next, and a big boost of confidence to just go for it."
