    As long as wanderlust exists, the travel essay will never stop appealing to readers who want more than mere information. You’ll learn that to be an effective travel writer you must lead the reader into the wonder of a place, remembering that your experience can only be conveyed through specific details. We’ll discuss ‘finding’ the story; ways to begin; the importance of the quest and we’ll do fun and inspiring writing exercises, sharing our travel experiences through the written word.

Times, Maclean’s, The Walrus, USA Today, Salon.com, The National Post, Canadian Geographic, among others. She lives in Wakefield, Quebec, where she works from home as a freelance editor.
