The ninth annual Bradt travel-writing seminar

In association with Travellers’ Tales 

When?

The next Bradt travel-writing workshop – chaired by Hilary Bradt and with a panel including Ben Ross, travel editor of The Independent – will take place on 23 November 2014 in Earls Court, London.

Why come?

We believe that we offer the best-value, highest quality and most enjoyable travel-writing workshop available. Its genesis came in 2003 when Hilary Bradt was invited by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington to organise a seminar on travel writing. The course was a sell-out, and the positive feedback encouraged Hilary to establish a seminar for aspiring travel writers in the UK.

The workshop has since become an annual event, tapping into the expertise of not only Bradt’s award-winning team, but of the current Head of Print at The Telegraph Travel and of Jonathan Lorie, the country’s leading teacher on the craft of travel writing. It has developed a sterling reputation and has a proven track record of assisting students to get their work published. Whether you want to give yourself the best chance of seeing your words in print or would simply like to improve the quality of your travel blog, this is the workshop for you.

What the students say

Don’t just take our word for it! Below are comments from some of those who’ve attended the workshop:  

"Great! Entertaining, but above all highly practical, structured and accessible 'how to do it' to break into published travel writing. Full of usable advice – and stories."

“Really informative, well paced, interesting. Great panel – knowledgeable, humorous, lively. Couldn't be improved."

"I found the seminar even more useful than I expected it to be and it has given me renewed determination to continue and grow my travel writing. Thank you!"

“I was truly inspired to work at my writing after yesterday's seminar.  I found it very informative and practical.”
