Everyone wants to be a travel writer, right? But most people are doing it wrong. Travel stories are a great way to break into freelance writing but forget about that trip to The Maldives. Pitching ideas closer to home is a much better way to start.

This one-hour travel writing workshop will cover generating ideas, writing pitches and approaching commissioning editors. We will use the local area for inspiration. It’s a group session with participation encouraged. Bring pen, paper, iPad etc. And expect plenty of insider top tips.

David Atkinson is a travel writer for the Daily Telegraph and a lecturer in media at the University of Chester.
