Testimonial from the 2016 Complete Travel Writing & Marketing Master Class:

“Roy is right to the point. He gives precise and tangible information and professional writing advice. He gives information on how to obtain complimentary travel press trips—the most comprehensive information I have ever heard. I would recommend this program to travel writers, whether a novice writer or someone like me looking to “kick it up a notch”. This course is outstanding.”

“I think you should know that I have been sending your link to many a travel journalist as your site is one of the most helpful I've seen to date. I even sent it to my sister who writes mostly about gardens and she was totally blown away by the amount of information you are giving away for free.”
—Karen Leperi, Freelance Travel Writer

“This site is more like a book than a website. It is one of the best (if not THE best) travel-writing sites I've seen in a long time. It is packed! And most of the articles will be useful to any freelancer, not just travel writers.”
