ClassThe Global Writer
This is a travel writing class that pushes the boundaries of a typical travel writing class: we’ll be reading and writing as global citizens and adventurers. We’ll dissolve whatever boundaries might exist between “travel writing” and writing about place, landscape, cities, globalism, immigration and living abroad, and how travel and transit have rapidly evolved in a digital, globalized world.
This class is ideal for writers and bloggers interested in traditional travel writing, whether literary or journalistic––we’ll focus on long-form literary travel writing, and explore crossover works that double as reportage. It’s also ideal for those who are interested in writing narrative features, opinion pieces, essays or blog posts that deal with place, landscape, adventure, and global issues. Drawing inspiration from reading master works and exciting new voices, we will experiment with weekly in-class and take-home writing exercises and short assignments.
