Twice a year I run a two-day travel-writing workshop in Brussels or London offering in-depth advice and insider knowledge on the following topics:
>> How to find topical pegs, craft the perfect pitch, and sell your story to multiple outlets
>>How to make contacts with PRs and other industry professionals
>>When to pitch to editors – the golden hours
>>How to find your voice as a travel writer – writing your strengths
>>How to write evocative travel narratives (including words and phrases to avoid)
>>How to get on press trips
This includes tuition from 9am–4pm each day. You’d be responsible for booking your transport, accommodation and meals, but I’d be happy to provide you with suggestions/guidance on these.
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.
