Travel Writing Essentials: An Experiential Workshop & Trip to Ubin;

Sept 03, 10; Singapore Book Council 

Love travelling? Why not also write/ post about it?

But in the age of Instagram and Tripadvisor, what can a travel writer write about and how?


In such a context, my WORKSHOP equips  participants with an understanding of the following:

  • Essentials skills for Good Travel Writing (Print or Digital)

  • Basics of photography and video for travel writing

  • Making most of social media: Blogs, Instagram, Youtube

  • How to get published?

  • Paying the bills and more from travel writing

  • Ethics of travel writing

  • Creating, sustaining and extending your brand as a travel writer 

The workshop is suited for beginner and occasional travel writers (12 years and above). It is administered through a lecture, several exercises and group discussions. Recommendations for background reference materials are provided. The sessions can be from 3 hrs to 8 hours spread over 2 days.
