"What am I doing here?" was the late travel writer Bruce Chatwin's guiding question. Creative travel writing, as practised by such noted writers as Bill Bryson, Mary Morris, and Paul Theroux, is more than a catalogue of places visited, buses missed, and cathedrals toured. It is the story of the author's relationship to place; it is both outer and inner journey. In this workshop you will be taken through exercises designed to trigger memory, sharpen your powers of observation, and create travel stories and articles using techniques borrowed from the craft of fiction: characterization, description, dialogue, etc. Beginning writers are welcome.

Note: Instructor: Jessica Westhead
