Writing Abroad: A Guide for Travelers
October 26, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$30 – $35
Join us for this workshop meant for travelers of all backgrounds and writing levels: a student embarking on overseas study; a retiree realizing a dream of seeing China; a Peace Corps volunteer in Kenya. Chilson and Mulcahy have developed indispensable practical advice and adaptable exercises to help travelers hone their observational skills, conduct research and interviews, choose an appropriate literary form, and incorporate photos and videos into their writing.
Writing about travel is more than just safeguarding memories—it can transform experiences and tease out new realizations. Chilson and Mulcahy offer tips and tools to deepen travelers’ understanding of other cultures and write about that new awareness — considering the political, cultural, economic history of the travel destination — to develop responsive, balanced narratives in clear and vivid prose.
General Public: $35 (includes book)
WorldOregon Members: $30 (includes book)
