Travel Writing & Photography Weekend

A weekend of travel writing and photography at a great location in Norfolk, where sea, sand and hopefully some sun, will inspire you to write and photograph this beautiful area.

Travel writing is being able to convey in a written form a sense of place, adventure and atmosphere. To be a travel writer doesn’t mean you have to jet off around the world, as fantastic and glamorous as that may seem, it can simply be recounting a visit to your local town or village, about a day trip, mini break or holiday. This workshop encompasses the basic skills you need to write an informative and interesting feature or article about somewhere you’ve been and how to improve your general article writing skills.

Your writing tutor, Caroline Foster is an experienced freelance writer and tutor. Caroline regularly writes features for a number of national and regional publications on a wide variety of subjects.

In 2006, Caroline was awarded ‘Writer of the Year’ by the Writers Bureau.
Caroline guarantees not only will students enjoy the writing and photography workshop they will take away valuable tips and techniques that they will be able to apply to all their future writing including how to get published and paid.
