Storytelling is all around us-it's a letter home, a blog post, a diary entry, a Tweet or an Instagram post, or a tale in a pub. Travel Writer's Field Guide is an inspirational new reference book for anyone who loves to travel and wants to share their story. Within its pages, authors Phoebe Smith and Daniel Neilson offer advice about every element of travel writing, from taking notes on the road to planning, pitching, and creating the writing that people will want to read and editors will want to publish. With tips from magazine editors, bloggers, award-winning journalists, and broadcasters, this guide takes writers through every step in the process.
Travel Writer's Field Guide uncovers the secrets of getting published and making a living from travelling the world and writing. Readers will also find hacks for avoiding clichés, tips for writing on the road, and a guide to getting published. Other chapters cover such topics as how to make money from your travel blog, how to optimize your copy for the internet, and how to create compelling travel videos with just a smartphone.
Beautifully illustrated with bespoke drawings and stunning photography throughout, Travel Writer's Field Guide is a handy how-to for everyone from avid diary keepers to established writers and those in between. But it's more than just a book: it is complemented by a supplementary website as well as a podcast of the same name. Readers can also sign up for related newsletters and workshops.
