Beyond Travelogue Transform Your Travels into Compelling Stories with Craig Childs & Judy Muller
Join Craig Childs on a writing adventure. Award-winning non-fiction writers Craig Childs demonstrates how to turn events into the written word, from note-taking on location to the edited, printed page (or podcast blog). Learn how to become mindful, in the moment, of situations or emotions that would make compelling material for stories with wide appeal and how to blog “on the run” using sites such as Tumblr and Medium. For an interactive exercise to launch discussion, students should come to class with a few photos of their adventures (anything from a simple hike near home to exploring the Great Barrier Reef).
