Start your own travel blog

 In Adventure, Travel writing, Workshops

You might have cancelled your pony trekking expedition to Ulaanbaatar, but you’re still burning to write a decent blog about your conquest of a tributary of the Orinoco…

Travel writing’s an art – but one that can be learned.

Over a two-day workshop, Fred de Vries, author of eight non-fiction books on travel and music (among other things) will mentor you as you write a memorable travel piece, show you how to create your own blog site from scratch – and baptize it by uploading your first travel blog.

All in one weekend. All without shedding a drop of blood or donning your face mask. You can enroll for the writing day, the blogging day – or both, depending on your existing skills and needs.
