Course Catalog

Travel Writing Comprehensive

All Levels | If you dream of becoming a jet-set blogger, working travel writer, or award-winning travel memoirist, professional tools and techniques are your ticket to success. By course’s end, students will have crafted a compelling blog post, essay, article, and feature. We’ll also cover business basics from pitch to publish, and whether to accept those offers of free trips.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
