The Road Ahead - Where Next?
So, you've attended a Travel Writing Workshop, had your first articles published or begun the first chapter of your book. Where next?
Travel Writing Masterclass
We run Travel Writing Masterclasses, for those who have already attended a Workshop or have some experience of travel writing.
The Masterclasses are even smaller in size than the Workshops. At the Masterclass, you will have the opportunity to have one-on-one sessions with both Rory Maclean and Dea Birkett. It is a day dedicated to fine-tuning your travel writing - a day many have promised themselves.
New Journeys by Travel Writing Workshop Participants
Bloomsbury Travel Writing Masterclass graduate Gemma Thompson is compiling a book about women travelling alone and is looking for contributors. "I've been backpacking alone twice, and at the time couldn't really find any travel book which had been written by a girl on her own," she says. "My book will be a 'Girls guide to travelling alone' and will have stories from girl travellers who had experienced all manner of unexpected ups and downs whilst travelling. A light-hearted, humorous on-the-road companion for single female travellers. For example, one of mine might be about the time I was stranded in Guatemala City without any possessions and ended up being serenaded by a taxi driver singing Phil Collins..."
If you'd like your story to be included, just get in touch with Gemma through Twitter - @girlsthattravel
"I wish I'd had something like this book with me whilst I was away on my own. I think any woman of any age will enjoy the read and companionship," she says.
