Do you love to travel? Want to make it your day job? Dive into the fast-paced and lucrative world of travel writing where you can sample local, exotic cultures and everything from five-star hotels to jungle treks. Eric shows you how to generate and pitch ideas and structure articles. Through an informative lecture, you'll get an overview of the industry and discover what makes a great travel piece. By the end of class, you'll have begun writing a kick-ass essay and have learned what it takes to get your name in print. Your goal will be to sell your article within a couple of weeks after the class ends! Before you know it, you'll be on the road to your first free press trip. So pack your bags and your notebook and get ready for the journey of a lifetime! Two students already sold articles after this class to Men's Journal, Red Bulletin, and a travel blog. You're next!
