Travel writing is one of the most exciting genres of nonfiction, calling on all of an author’s skills—dramatic scenes, character sketches, concrete detail, point of view, scene by scene construction. This six-day intensive travel writing course will introduce you to essential techniques of travel, food and wine writing and give you expert, insider advice about how to submit and publish finished stories.

In addition to learning these skills, you’ll dine at outstanding restaurants, visit some of the world’s best wineries, and explore fascinating historic sights. You’ll enjoy exclusive behind-the-scenes tours unavailable to the general public. Best of all, you’ll receive up-to-date story ideas from local industry experts that you can turn into finished stories by the end of the travel writing course and submit to newspapers and magazines for publication.

The six-day travel writing class (May 18 – 24) will take place in Vaison la Romaine, one of the most beautiful medieval hill towns in Provence, and a center of its cultural and epicurean life since Roman times. The cost will be $2600. Plane tickets and travel to and from Vaison la Romaine are extra. See travel writing page on this website for more information.
