Presented by:UC Davis Global Affairs and the University Writing Program

Have you led a UC Davis Study Abroad program? Traveled recently for work or research? Do you have travel stories that you’d like to share with the UC Davis community or an even broader audience? Do you want to learn how to turn your travel experiences into a polished essay that appeals to readers?

If so, please join us for this travel writing workshop that is designed specifically for faculty and staff (graduate students are also welcome).

In this workshop, we’ll learn about the characteristics of effective travel writing, discuss strategies for addressing non-academic audiences, consider how to draw readers in with an engaging opening, and do some practice exercises to get the travel writing juices flowing.

Please bring a laptop or pen and paper to the workshop.
Workshop Leader
Melissa Bender is a Lecturer in the University Writing Program and a consultant for the Writing Across the Curriculum Program.
