You may not be traveling far afield these days, but you still have travel stories to tell: There's a rich world all around you—and inside you. In this workshop, participants will conceive, pitch, and write a short original travel piece of up to 1500 words. This may be based on close-to-home travel right now or on their memory of a cherished trip. In the workshop, we'll talk about structure, pacing, and making your point, and we'll closely read, discuss, and critique each participant's work
