This masterclass will take place online via Zoom and is open to students from anywhere.

Travel writing can take the form of a memoir, a historical narrative, or reportage. However, in whatever form it takes, the challenge of delivering a vivid and compelling account remains the same. In this masterclass, the author of the critically-acclaimed travel memoir Vagabond: Wandering Through Africa On Faith will take us into the process of drawing engaging stories from our travel experiences. The masterclass will cover the skills needed to sharpen our unique perspectives as we weave scene, reflection, and action into travel literature.
