Travel Writing Workshop with David Farley


Saturday, March 29, 2014
10:00 am - 4:00 pm


The role of the travel writer is to go one step beyond the realm of the average tourist. Learn how to do just that—from conducting pre-trip research and spotting a story on the road to making the perfect pitch to magazine editors and writing a publishable piece. Consider story ideas and the elements of good—and not-so-good—travel writing, debunk some of its myths, create structure for your story, discuss the business side of travel writing, and complete in-class writing exercises.


DAVID FARLEY is an award-winning food and travel writer. His writing appears regularly in the New York Times, National Geographic Traveler, Bon Appetit, and he’s a Contributing Editor at AFAR magazine. He’s the author of An Irreverent Curiosity: In Search of the Strangest Relic in Italy’s Oddest Town, which is currently being made into a documentary for National Geographic. He teaches writing at New York University.
