Private Consultations (Travel Writers & Photographers Conference)


Optional 30-minute private consultations are available for $95. You may use that time to either discuss a concept or proposal, or have a faculty member give you feedback on a portion of work or portfolio you have submitted. Faculty members offering consultations are listed below.

•    If you have signed up for a consultation for your written work, your submission must be double-spaced and should not exceed 20 pages. Please bring two (2) copies of your work to the conference. Additionally, please select three (3) members of the faculty, ranking them in order of preference, and note their names in an email to Kathryn Petrocelli at bpconferences@bookpassage.com. This will give you a better chance of being matched with one of your preferred faculty members!

Additionally, please select three (3) members of the faculty, ranking them in order of preference, and note their names in an email to Kathryn Petrocelli at bpconferences@bookpassage.com.

•    If you would like a consultation regarding your online presence, please select three (3) members of the faculty, ranking them in order of preference, and note their names in an email to Kathryn Petrocelli at bpconferences@bookpassage.com.
