Section Description

Satisfy your travel bug by Travel Writing Wherever You Are. Using a range of writing approaches, you will experience wherever you are both as a beginner and as an insider. Project options include examining a historical/cultural object, finding a hidden gem, curating a series of what travel mags call "postcards" or a "basket of kittens," 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 [The Best American Travel Writing 2018, edited by Cheryl Strayed -- please make sure you get the 2018 edition]


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. Warning: it really does go FAST, and there will be reading, writing, and review due nearly every day.
