Writing About Place: The Art of Travel Writing
How do we write about places we visit in a way that is responsible, relevant, and interesting? This class is for the amateur travel writer - the person who finds that when they are in transit, when they are away from home, they are inspired to write. In this class we’ll consider the challenges of travel writing, explore the work of writers like Molly Crabapple, Deborah Levy, Andre Aciman, and Aminatta Forna, and get to work on our own essays.
This class will take place in-person at our Center for Creative Writing in Boston's Seaport neighborhood.
GrubStreet's space will be mask optional when Boston's Covid-19 Community Level is low or medium. When the Covid-19 Community Level is high, our space will require masks. Please check GrubStreet's Covid-19 page for the latest info on masking and Community Levels before visiting in-person.
