More Information

Section Description

Satisfy your travel bug by Travel Writing Wherever You Are. If you are able to get away, great! If you have to stay where you are, that's also great! Using a range of writing approaches, you will experience where you are both as a beginner and as an insider. Projects will include examining a historical/cultural object, finding a hidden gem, curating a series of what travel mags call "postcards," and a technique I call "rando-writing."

Section Expectation

This is a fully online class that goes fast! Expect to read a lot of terrific published travel writing, and to write/review/revise your own short genres. You will also be giving feedback to your peers, and receiving it back in kind. Work will be done through Blackboard, Bb discussions, Eli Review, and a required anthology of travel writing.


I use Labor-Based Grading, which means that you contract for your workload in alignment with the grade you will receive. Elements that count toward your workload are reviewing peers through Eli Review, discussing readings, and completing each writing project (approx 1 per week).
