Join me for a workshop on The Art of the Travel Essay on Sunday, September 10th from *2:00-4:00pm*. This workshop will take place at the large table in the back of the Upper North Room, and space is limited.

About the Workshop:
A former senior editor and a longtime contributor to Outside magazine, Brad Wetzler has traveled on assignment for many major magazines. In this class, he distills his knowledge and wisdom into a workshop focused on teaching you to write powerful travel narratives. You’ve taken the trip, you have the stories to tell, but you’re not quite sure how to turn an exciting experience into a riveting travel story. This pen-to-paper workshop will introduce you to the elements of an effective travel narrative, including tips on creating an entertaining first-person “persona” and making use of the crucial “Accordion Theory of Time.” Bring notes about a recent journey and be prepared to write!

Tickets are $35 and space is limited! Purchase tickets at the store or over the phone.
