Bursting with invaluable advice, How to Be a Travel Writer is an inspiring and practical guide. Fully revised and updated in this new edition, it is a must for anyone who yearns to write about travel - whether they aspire to make their living from it or simply enjoy jotting in a journal for posterity.

You don't have to make money to profit from travel writing. Sometimes, the richest rewards are in the currency of experience. How to be a Travel Writer reveals the varied possibilities that travel writing offers and inspires all travellers to take advantage of those opportunities. That's where the journey begins - where it takes you is up to you.

Let legendary travel writer Don George show you the way with his invaluable tips on:

  • The secrets of crafting a great travel story
  • How to conduct pre-trip and on-the-road research
  • Effective interviewing techniques
  • How to get your name in print (and money in your bank account)
  • Quirks of writing for newspapers, magazines, online and books
  • Extensive listings of writers' resources and industry organisations
  •  Interviews with established writers, editors and agents 

Don George is the author of The Way of Wanderlust: The Best Travel Writing of Don George and of Lonely Planet's Guide to Travel Writing and the editor of ten anthologies, including A Moveable Feast, The Kindness of Strangers, Better Than Fiction, and An Innocent Abroad.
