Travel Writing Workshop: Sept 15-19

After taking a short summer break, the IAMAT Blog is back! Many of us are winding down our summer travels and holidays, getting ready for the back to work and back to school season. For us at IAMAT, it’s usually a time to take stock of the coming year, start new projects – a new beginning of sorts.

If you are considering taking up a new challenge this Fall and have always dreamed of combining your travel experience, creativity, and passion to discover new things and meet new people, there’s an affordable workshop for you. Robert Haru Fisher, a columnist and contributing editor for frommers.com (and a member of IAMAT’s Board of Directors), is offering his popular Travel Writing Workshop in the beautiful Upper Hudson Valley, NY in September.

The theme of this intensive three day workshop is ‘How to shape your writing and then market it successfully.’ Robert will guide you through the different types of travel writing, good writing styles, research techniques, getting published in electronic and traditional media, and networking. Students will also participate in reading and group discussions / critiques of writing assignments. The workshop includes a tour of the Upper Hudson Valley area with writing assignments to be done in the evening. A fourth day, which is optional, was added for participants interested in having one-on-one interviews with Robert.

Here are the details:

  • Date: September 15-19, 2009 (optional evening reception on September 15).
  • Location: Space 360 in Hudson, NY (approximately 2 hours from New York City).
  • Cost: US $275
