WRI 210 Travel Writing

Course Description

Imagine dashing off to discover an exotic foreign destination and then getting paid to write about it! You can turn your lust for travel into a money-making (ad)venture. And, surprisingly--if you love to write but hate to travel--you can still make money writing travel articles. Discuss categories of travel writing, how to research new angles for well-travelled destinations, how to write great leads and succinct reader-grabbing stories, how to target your market, and how to maximize material from a single story into several articles. You will have the option to compose up to a 1000 word travel article for the second class. You will learn how to self-critique, rewrite and polish as necessary, and discover where and how to successfully market your stories .
