‘A unique and completely invaluable guide to the dark arts of travel writing. Highly recommended.’ – William Dalrymple

Section 1 is built around 12 ‘creative journeys’ that you can make wherever you are, at home or abroad. Each explores a key skill for your travel writing, with examples, advice, reading lists, assignments and feedback.

Section 2 provides detailed practical information on how to write for different formats and get your stories published. Here you can learn how to start a travel blog, write articles and books, approach editors and publishers, create a portfolio career and build your own business model.

Every chapter includes advice from today’s leading experts in travel writing. Forty travel authors, journalists, bloggers, editors, publishers and literary agents were interviewed to give the inside track on how to write great travel stories and get them published.
