As travel writers, we put words together to paint pictures of the destinations we visit.
Writing about a place we love seems like such an easy thing to do. From the readers perspective, we live a charmed life.
But, as you know, there’s much more to your travel writing craft.
Things behind the scenes that your reader doesn’t know about:
All of this, and more, is part of writing.
There’s also a lot to learn about controlling your time, and freeing yourself up from mundane tasks so that you can spend more time on the things you love to do – writing and travel.
So, this page includes information about topics that focus on aspects of your travel writing craft. How you can improve your writing and increase your productivity – and get those articles out to the editors.
