A137 - Travel Tales: A Travel Writing Workshop
Sometimes photographs or social media snippets do not seem enough to capture the moods, nuances and flavours of a place quite like words do. If you agree, then do not miss our upcoming workshop which will teach you to paint rich word-pictures of your travels! Avid Learning and Juggernaut Books present Travel Tales: A Travel Writing Workshop with Award-Winning Author and Journalist Dilip D’Souza. Explore how to capture anecdotes and record your memories. Learn how to tell your own story well. Learn how to translate your experiences into a memorable narrative – beyond pictures, hashtags and 280 characters – and craft something compelling that will make your readers say “Wow!”
Workshop Highlights include:
— The delight in keeping your eyes — and maybe all your senses — open when you travel; and then how to use what your senses tell you when you write.
— The importance of voice — YOUR voice.
— What a dose of passion can do for your writing.
Before you set off on your next adventure, join him to explore that travel-writing itch!

He searches for the small stories that hold larger lessons because it’s in telling those stories that his writing is most effective.
