Travel Writing workshop coming up!

How to capture your travel adventures, while not missing a thing? How to prep yourself by deciding in advance what kinds of things you want to write about? How to find the right type of journal for your trip?

What to Expect

These are the things we’ll discuss in the workshop. You will practice journal writing with timed, flow writing. That means you will write about a topic from a prompt that you choose. You write for about seven minutes, as fast as you can without stopping to think or correct anything. You write fast and free and wild without hesitation, which engages the right side of the brain that makes connections and finds meaning. You will see how to capture memories, conversations, and experiences in the downtime you have.

Where and When

The workshop, “Travel Writing” will be held during International Education Week, next Tuesday, November 14, 3:00-4:15 p.m. at tglobal-program-logohe Cailloux Campus Activity Center (CCAC) in the Fish Bowl meeting room (2nd floor) on Schreiner University’s campus. McKenna Blackstone, a 2016 study abroad student in Spain, will facilitate the workshop with me.

Get inspired before you arrive. See my Pinterest board, Journal your Travels, for ideas galore on journal writing your travels and adventures.

Author:

Writer, published author, traveler, blogger, workshop facilitator, spiritual sojourner. Authored coming-of-age travel memoir, At Home in the World: Travel Stories of Growing Up and Growing Away. This story covers my travels at a young age as a result of my involvement with my local church. My relationship with my mother prepares me for my ventures into the world. But I disappoint both family and church by leaving the church. Working on novel about a young woman who travels to India in 1906 to sell her uncle's horses. She loses her brother in route, builds a friendship in India that solidifies her sense of self that she has questioned all her life, and finds a man on board ship who loves her just the way she is but struggles to commit. I live in Texas with the love of my life, husband Lynn, and our Shih Tzu, Murphy, who is more cat than dog.

I'd enjoy hearing your electronic voice.
