Somehow travel writing, photography and the untethered expat life just seem to naturally flow together. What career tools are more portable, after all, than a laptop and a camera?
If you can write or photograph, you have the means to support your overseas life. If you can do both, you can carve out a big niche for yourself.
But what if you need to develop some skills before you get that first paid assignment, or sell the first story or image?
Join a limited number of others for an outstanding workshop which will help you develop a portable career as a travel writer and/or photographer.
The Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshop
Next month, a very special group will gather in the Windy City, Chicago, USA. AWAI’s Travel Writer’s Life group has put together a program that promises to turn you from traveler to travel writer in three days of intensive workshops. You’ll also have a chance to meet representatives from travel publications who are looking for new writers, and you’ll leave the event with a publishable piece that you’ve completed.
As a special bonus, there will be a session with a professional photographer as well, to help you integrate photos into your travel writing.
Get more information about the Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshop here.
(If you can’t make the live event but still want access to all the great information about becoming a travel writer, go here.)
The Photographer’s Life
“Ah, Venice!” Canals, gorgeous architecture, world-class museums. Everywhere you turn in beautiful Venice, Italy, you’ll find wonderful subjects for photographs. It’s a city like no other, and this September you can enjoy it as part of a photography expedition.
You’ll learn all about taking — and selling — professional quality photographs.
It’s a five-day adventure. And if you register before the end of July, you can save some money as well.
Find out more about the Venice Photography Expedition here.
If you’d rather learn on your own timetable, click here for information about how to Turn Your Pictures into Cash.
Both these workshops are filling fast, so act now!

thanks for the links. i’m going to read over the writer workshop info (as i can’t make it to chicago) and hopefully start doing some of my own stuff. my sister is trying to convince me to be a travel writer, so this will be a good starting point for me.
Glad you found it helpful, Mack!
