Writing Abroad : A Guide for Travelers, Hardback Book


Tell me all about your trip! It's a request that follows travelers as they head out into the world, and one of the first things they hear when they return.

When we leave our homes to explore the wider world, we feel compelled to capture the experiences and bring the story home.

But for those who don't think of themselves as writers, putting experiences into words can become more stressful than inspirational.Writing Abroad is 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 worker in Kenya.

All can benefit from documenting their adventures. Through practical advice and adaptable exercises, this guide will 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.

With Writing Abroad, travelers will be able to deepen their understanding of other cultures and write about that new awareness in clear and vivid prose.
