4 Books that Will Improve Your Travel Writing
May 02, 2016
Greetings Fellow Travel Writers and Bloggers!

If you want paying editors of print publications to notice you and approve your stories for publication, your writing needs to be readable and exciting.

Learning the art of telling a story is an important step. Eventually you want to move past the ‘Top Ten’ lists and transform your writing through storytelling. Your goal is to captivate your readers and move us in some way.

So, how do you transform your writing from bland “guidebook” descriptions or amateurish, “First I went here and then I went there” narratives?

One of the best ways to improve your writing is by reading other people’s work. In an eternal quest to improve my travel writing, I’ve read hundreds of travel articles, blogs, and books looking for high quality examples to model in my own writing.

There are also some fundamental writing guidelines you can follow to improve your writing.

This week’s post reviews 4 reference books for writers that will help you boost your writing to the next level. Some will help you with style, others with structure, and one - hot off the press - can help you with writing for social media.

These books aren’t exclusively for travel writers, so I point out the chapters in each book that will help you - as a travel writer - get the most out of it.

These are all books on my bookshelf that I refer to time and again.
