 Travel Writing: From Ordinary Observation to Extraordinary Essay

Taking a very loose definition of “travel,” this course will teach you how to craft your ordinary observations into exquisite essays. We’ll read and discuss different examples of personal essay, journalism, as well as classic and contemporary travel writing to inform and inspire our own work. Each class will focus on a different technique: sentence structure, metaphor, scene, voice, and revision. Writing will be shared in a curious and supportive class environment.  more >>
