For anyone who has ever wondered how to break into the field of travel writing, Arctic Encounters is organising an intensive one-day, practice-based event. The day will bring together leading authors, editors, journalists and publishers to discuss what being a travel writer today is all about. The talks will cover how to actually start writing and get published, how to pitch editors and target specific publications, and how to navigate the changing media landscape of journalism and publishing today.

Registration for the workshop is currently open. Due to high demand, a limited number of places are available for attendance. The cost of the day-long seminar is £80; student concessions are £50. For more information or to register, please email Roger Norum (r.norum [at] leeds.ac.uk).
