Imagine manifesting trips to exotic destinations...on someone else's nickel! Or traveling on your own and earning back your expenses, just by writing a story about your experience? Travel writers do both all the time, and in Travel Right...Travel Write, a six-week class series at Technical College of the Lowcountry, Beaufort campus, you can discover how. Through in-class and take-home exercises, you will learn the nuts and bolts of travel writing, including researching, interviewing, querying, finding markets and identifying trip sources. By the end of the series, you'll have a travel story in hand that publications will snap right up.
