Description

Travel Memoir Writing

Join award-winning author John Ahern in this interactive workshop as he shares insights into three of his favourite things: travel, writing, and travel writing. Working together, you will have fun honing skills on research, ‘time travel’, immersion, layering and other techniques, as a way of creating a great travel-based story. If you are ready for take-off with your own travel memoir, this workshop is for you.
