[Posted on: 24 March 2010]
[Posted in: Interviews, Writer's Education]

While researching travel writing workshops for my post last week, I came across ACE Camps. ACE Camps features a variety of educational workshops, a couple of which were specific to travel writing, so naturally I included them in my post.

Many of you will remember Lisa Lambden from my prior interview with her – she’s the founder and director of the Travel Channel Academy.

Editing is a must when you write. Even the best writers and editors need someone else to edit their work. It is very easy when you are typing quickly to misspell or use the wrong spelling of a word. I did it a few weeks ago with an important e-mail—using their instead of there—and I [...]

Travel Writers can benefit from learning a second or third language, especially if you travel frequently to other countries.

This year’s Book Passage Travel Writers and Photographers Conference has come to an end. The final day was shorter, especially for me as I had to duck out a bit early to catch my flight home.

Day Three (yesterday) of the 18th Annual Book Passage Travel Writers and Photographers Conference was a long day spent trying to absorb as much of the outpouring of knowledge and experience being shared as I possibly could – taking notes both on paper and laptop so fast and furiously that my hands were starting to [...]

First, before I dive right into divulging any more of the great travel writing advice I’m gleaning from the Book Passage Travel Writers and Photographers Conference, I have to extend major kudos to the wonderful folks here at the Book Passage bookstore – it takes a special type of person to pull off a conference [...]
