Everyone wants to be a better writer. And this workshop, led by four accomplished travel writers, will help you learn to do just that. Starting with your concept, and progressing through to a finished piece, you’ll learn the life cycle of a travel story and how to make yours better. You’ll leave this workshop with solid takeaways on how to improve your writing, including:

  • How to understand and write to your audience
  • How to find your voice (and why it matters)
  • Where’s that confounded angle? It’s great that you went somewhere, but what’s the story?
  • Learn the structure of a story, both narrative and non-narrative (hint: they’re different)
  • Write stronger, more evocative descriptions
  • Take the bloat out of your writing
  • Improve your writing with research and fact-checking
  • Become a better self-editor, including things to do before you hit publish

This Pre-BEX writing workshop is designed for those who want to spend some time workshopping their writing. It is not a prerequisite for attending any of the writing classes on the main program and we believe all levels of writers will find it worthwhile.

Please come prepared to the workshop with a post or story that is no longer than 800 words.

Chances are you have a website you’re happy with, but have things you’d love to be able to do with it – whether that’s calling your “web guy” or bartering with a friend you owe coffee to (several times over).

Or maybe you don’t have a website Yet. Because you’re completely new to this whole thing and you want to start from scratch. If only you knew where to begin.

This workshop will take an in-depth look at the basics of code, design, and even some SEO to get you on your way to running a better site, including:

  • Hosting and domain names
  • How to Install WordPress
  • Basic HTML and CSS
  • Basic Color Theory
  • Basic Typography
  • Basic SEO (the non-spammy kind)
