Become A Travel Writer at ITWAP

Are you a traveler? Does traveling the world writing travel stories and taking travel photos appeal to you? If yes, then you might just need the right skill to jump-start or accelerate a career in travel writing.

The Society of American Travel Writers will be holding its 13th annual Institute for Travel Writing & Photography from January 25-27, 2008, in Orlando, Florida. The one-weekend institute is for writers, travel writers and experienced travelers who want to learn travel writing for articles and guidebooks or who already are travel writers and want to improve their performance. This travel writing course teaches how to prepare article queries and book proposals, how to negotiate contracts, how to work with editors, how to organize your time, how to self-publish your own books, and how to publish your travel writing on the Internet.

The course is lead by top travel editors and writers who debunk the glamor of travel writing as an extended vacation and teach the course as a career that must be approached with real world skills, goals and expectations.
