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

Here’s what we’ve got for you this week:
Monday, February 25, 5pm EST: What Types of Articles Should You Be Writing?
In this webinar, we cover the different major types of articles that you should be looking out for when you’re on the road: examples of these types of articles, how to pitch them, and how to write them.
If you come into travel writing from a non-journalism background, the prospect of conducting official interviews can be daunting.
In this webinar, we’ll cut past the anxiety and unpack exactly what you do and don’t need to know about doing interviews to flesh out your articles–and how learning to rock them can make your writing process much faster and more effective.
I’m always shocked when I see people selling lists of contacts at tourism boards. They aren’t hard to find! And, you’d be shocked how many (important!) people are not only available but very happy to speak with you for your articles. We’ll look at how to find the right people for each piece.
By popular request, in this webinar, I’ll walk through the process of organizing notes and quotations from interviews into a full reported feature article from start to finish. The entire webinar will be a live demo using real interviews.
Editors often say they want “researched” and “tight” “copy”, but what does that mean and how do you do it?
In this webinar, the beginning of a new craft-oriented series on uncovering journalistic detail in your field research and incorporating it into different types of pieces, we explore what journalistic detail is, why you need it, and how to know it when you see it.
Don’t be late! All the free replays start right on time, and the system isn’t able to accept late attendees.
