Writing the Lake Superior Experience
Join me June 27-July 1 in the Apostle Islands for my new travel-writing course with the Madeline Island School of the Arts. We'll explore Madeline Island and surrounding islands on foot, by boat, and by sea kayak to discover the rich history and natural attractions of this unique Island outpost. On days we don't travel, we'll meet in class to discuss the craft of travel writing and work on your own writing. You'll learn how to sharpen your observations and weave your experiences into a story template to write a marketable travel article. You'll also learn the basics of pitching a story idea and working with editors. Every student will have the opportunity to write a query letter and a 1,000-word feature and sidebar, and to discuss the draft with the instructor. Whether you write about travel for fun or intend to write professionally, this class will give you the tools to structure and write your stories effectively. Lodging is available on this refurbished island farm.
