Shorthand Travel News: Updated Itinerary and “The Art of the Pitch” Post

We recently announced that we would hold our summer workshop, to take place 23-30 June 2019, on the island of Korcula.


Apart from looking forward to spending our days on the coast of Croatia talking shop with regard to travel writing, we are excited to share the tentative itinerary. The classes will give our students all the tools they need to report as well as the opportunity to meet some cool locals. Take a look at the updated page and choose “Join Us in Korcula.”


I have also recently written a new blog post about one of the most fundamental components of travel writing: the art of the pitch. Take a look at the post and read one of the selections from our reading list online. Alex’s notes in his open letter during his time as travel editor of Paste magazine is a great tool for novice travel writers.


Don’t forget to reserve your place on the trip!
