Travel and food writing assignments are some of the most glamorous and popular in journalism, but they can be surprisingly difficult. Whether you imagine your stories on the glossy pages of a travel magazine, or published on your blog, or social media sites, this workshop will provide tips on crafting engaging, informative travel, and food prose. Workshop participants will use the tips to write a short article based on a recent travel or dining experience.
