Travel Writing 2016


Travel Writing
by April Yap (with Camille Dela Rosa on the first day)
April 20 and 22, 2016
6pm to 9pm

Please read our general guidelines for WRITING and PHOTOGRAPHY workshops.

Tales of travel have captured the imaginations of people around the world, from ancient to modern times.  Now, travel writing has become a craft that many practice, but few excel in. The fact is, some tales are told better than others. Fortunately, travel writing is a skill that can be learned by anyone determined to succeed.

Whether for personal or professional purposes, the Ayala Museum Write Now! program is offering a course on Travel Writing with facilitator April Yap. She will go over the basics of travel writing for various platforms.
