The Charms of Travel Writing @ Newtown campus, Tuesday, August 6, from 6:30pm-8:30pm, Margaret Montet, M.M. Continuing Education Course Code Number: RCEGN 6976 C01
Whether you are thinking of preparing a travel narrative for publication or you just want to preserve your travel memories creatively, this workshop is for you! Travel experiences don’t happen linearly, so why try to record them that way? (“This happened, and then this, and then this…” Blah!) Compelling travel narratives contain anecdotes, personal remembrances, encounters with culture, and conversations: these are the charms! In this workshop, we will consider some examples of fine literary travel writing and then try our hands at creating our own narratives. Bring a favorite travel photo along (on your phone is easiest) for one of our prompts, and a good pen or pencil.
