Event Details

A two-day crash course in travel writing and journalism with some of the Guardian and Observer's experts


Think travel writing is all long-form features and books? Think again. In this intensive weekend held in the Guardian offices with some of its best travel journalists, you'll cover the many different aspects of writing about travel today.

In revealing and practical sessions with plenty of opportunities for questions, you'll cover travel writing and journalism as it is today: the craft of long-form writing, multimedia (including photography), how to blog, how to pitch, what print and online editors are looking for (and what they're definitely not), and more.

The weekend is curated by Andy Pietrasik (Guardian Head of Travel), and tutors include the leading travel writers for the Guardian and Observer. 

This course is aimed at enthusiastic travellers – no matter the destination! – and is intended to give a unique insight into those who work as travel writers.

Times: 10am-5pm

Venue: The Guardian, 90 York Way, London, N1 9GU
