Become a travel writer for a day in York, Leeds or Yorkshire national park! Want to be a travel writer? Wondering how to get into the business or what it entails? Come and spend the day with me, and not only will you get some hands-on experience doing real research, but you'll have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you like. I've been a Rough Guide writer for over 25 years, travelling all over the world, and have written scores of features for papers, magazines and websites. I'll show you the ropes from the inside as we visit hotels, restaurants, museums, galleries and natural attractions. There will be plenty of time to discuss writing and research skills, marketing, freelance working, book publishing and feature writing, and you'll come away with a wealth of new ideas and inspiration. This is serious, street-level travel-writing in the company of a highly experienced, published author – better than a lecture course or seminar any day!
