    • how to land free trips
    • how to get paid really, really well for your writing

  • how to navigate every step of the process to land travel content marketing work, including phone calls and proposals
  • how to keep your hourly rate down so your bank account goes up
  • how to get work done on the road
  • how to write, step-by-step, 15 different types of travel articles

You can grab access to all of our past webinars (and a ton of other resources you can’t find anywhere else) with a subscription to our Dream Buffet or grab them one-by-one when you need them in our On-Demand Webinar Library for a set with the video, audio, transcript, and slides.

But we also air a free replay of one of our travel writing classes each and every weekday.

Each weekday at 2pm PST / 5pm EST / 10pm GMT / 11pm CET (and 9am AEDT Tues-Sat), we show one webinar from our archives, rotating through all of them over the course of four months.

Here’s what we’ve got for you this week:

Monday, November 25, 5pm EST: How to Break Your Trips into the Maximum Number of Article Pitches

In the second month of our new series walking through the construction of different types of articles, we hone in on the easy-to-write (and pitch!) staple of magazines everywhere: the front-of-book round-up.

The bread-and-butter of travel features, the quest piece, is one of the easiest features to pitch, get readers interested in, and research.

Tuesday, November 26, 5pm EST: How to Increase Your Pitch Success Rate by Analyzing Magazines

While some of your are at the point in your writing career of tentatively dipping your toes into the shallow end of the features pool, others of you have drunk the storytelling Koolaid and are looking for what is next.

Where do you go when you’re bored of writing features? What is next?

When you’ve amassed a considerable amount of knowledge about the areas you’ve covered along with writing experience, it’s time to consider the wide world of essays. There are an astonishing number of outlets to place them in, the pay is there, and, most importantly, you have the satisfaction of writing exactly what you want to write.

We’ll cover the landscape as well as how to start diving into writing magazine-style essays.

Thursday, November 28, 5pm EST: Don’t Create “Ideas” Out of Nowhere: How to Always Find Them When You Need Them

Showing an editor (in both your pitch and your article submission) that you already understand what she’s looking for is one of the best ways to forge a long-term relationship with an editor. But that goes behind simply familiarizing yourself with the publication.

Understanding and using AP style, the preferred grammar and style format for print and many online publications, can quickly broadcast to an editor that you have solid journalist experience (even if you actually don’t!).

Friday, November 29, 5pm EST: How to Hone Your Travel Article Ideas to Perfectly Fit Each Magazine

Continuing the groundwork we laid in last week’s call on AP style, we move into writing essentials on a structural level, beginning with sentence structure. I’ll unpack common issues I (and other editors) are increasingly seeing today and how to avoid them in your writing.

If you’ve been primarily writing on your own blog or for clients that don’t have in-house editors, this will bring your writing to the next level so that when you pitch editors, rather than an eyebrow raise and delete, your pitches elicit a sense of professional camaraderie due to your polished prose.
