travel writing: From Here to there

Course description

Through this seminar, we’ll explore our travel not just as an adventure to report, but as a lens through which we can examine our lives. For inspiration, we’ll draw on esteemed travel writers such as Gretel Ehrlich, Paul Theroux, and Cheryl Strayed. Students will have the opportunity to shape their journeys into stories through helpful in-class writing prompts and exercises. The seminar will include a brief overview on the development of the genre and a discussion over the relevant place travel writing has in today’s global community.


This three-hour seminar will be taught at Grub Street Workshops in Boston.
