Event description

Description


Experience vibrant, extraordinary Barcelona the best way possible: as a travel writer. In this dynamic five-day workshop, you’ll awaken your senses and ignite your creativity. Learn the art of the narrative travel essay through daily writing sessions, craft discussions, and innovative journaling prompts. Your days will be filled with inspiration, and you'll come to recognize your most meaningful travel experiences and shape them into powerful stories.

During the workshop, you will start, revise, and aim to finish an essay or a collection of short works. Meanwhile, you'll immerse yourself in the culture—relax, roam, eat, drink, shop, take tours (on your own or as part of our optional excursions), take siestas. Travel has the ability to make writers of us all, and this trip will turn that potential into reality.
