OVERVIEW

THURSDAY - FRIDAY - SATURDAY - SUNDAY

Have you led a life that has taken you around the globe but you have never written down all those great stories from your travels? Have you ever dreamed of being paid to travel? Do you want your grandchildren and great grandchildren to know who you are and where you have been?

This workshop will teach you the art of travel writing for pleasure and profit. Studying examples from masters of the genre, you will acquire the necessary tools to write your own travel pieces. In a session dedicated to how to get published, you will learn about the myriad outlets where you can submit your work.

During the four-day workshop, you will be able to complete a short piece and get it ready for submission, or kick-start that travel memoir you always promised yourself you would write. Student pieces written in class can be contributed to a commemorative book compiled especially for the workshop.

France has a long history of inspiring English-speaking travel writing – from Ernest Hemingway memoirs to Adam Gopnikís essays. Let the Château des Sablons be the perfect backdrop to begin recording your own globe-trotting experiences. Remember: Every life is a moveable feast.
