There’s a storyteller inside all of us.
The trick is getting it out.
If you looking to improve your writing, land assignments that send you to the far reaches of the globe, pitch editors, write a book proposal, or pen that bestseller that is yearning to break free, you’re in the right place.
Becoming a good writer takes practice and, most importantly, a good teacher.
When you are traveling, living in a small town, or have limited funds, finding that teacher can be difficult. I know. I’ve been there. When I started out I looked high and low for a course that would help me improve my writing while I traveled.
That’s why we created this writing program. This is a college-level course — without the college price — that you can take anywhere in the world.
And it features the hands-on help, writing feedback, and editing advice that can bring out the master writer inside you.
We’ve partnered with award-winning travel writer David Farley, author of An Irreverent Curiosity, host for National Geographic, and former writing professor at Columbia and New York University to teach a masterclass on the nuts and bolts of travel writing.
David is considered one of the top travel writers in the country. He’s hosted a National Geographic Channel show, and his work has appeared in the New York Times, National Geographic Traveler, Travel + Leisure, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, AFAR, and countless other publications.
Through video lectures, interviews with successful travel writers and editors, detailed examples of edited stories, graphics, and real-world examples, you’ll learn everything you need to improve your writing – from crafting a story to self-editing, improving your grammar, writing a book proposal, coming up with ideas, creating narrative arcs, and pitching editors.
Moreover, being a great writer will help you land new clients and get ahead at work. And we offer something not found in other courses: copyedits and notes on your writing and monthly office hours.
This isn’t a course that dumps information on your lap. It is a partnership with continuous feedback and guidance so you can constantly improve your work.
