Travel Writing 101
Have you returned from a trip with stories to tell? Are you planning to bring your notebook on your next journey? Taught by Bill Donahue, a journalist who has reported stories in over 20 countries, for magazines ranging from Wired to The Atlantic, this class will help you to turn your travel adventures into cogent narratives. We will look at seminal works of travel journalism and the basics of storytellingcharacter and scene development, for instanceas we discuss students' story ideas and manuscripts.

In 25 years of reporting adventures, Bill Donahue has kayaked through the concrete drainage ditch that is the Los Angeles River, ridden all-terrain-vehicles with hardened criminals through the stripmined hills of West Virginia, biked the streets of Shanghai, and snuck into Manuel Noriega's abandoned beach house in Panama. His writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, The New York Times Magazine, Best American Sports Writing, and Best American Travel Writing. He has been nominated for a National Magazine Award two times, and he won the gold medal in the Adventure Travel division of the 2012 Lowell Thomas Awards. With his daughter, Allie, he is the co-editor of the zine, biff. His website is billdonahue.net.
