Writing from Afar: A Travel Writing Workshop
In a world where every place has been discovered, what is the point of travel writing? In this workshop, author Marcello Di Cintio will discuss the changing role of narrative travel journalism in today’s hyper-connected world. When writers go off to seek stories in the great wide world, what are their goals and responsibilities, how do they portray the Other, and how far should they go to create compelling literary art? Participants should come ready with a travel story they’d like to work on.
