Describing the experience of living in another culture requires a special way of thinking and writing. Learn—through descriptions of sights, sounds, and tastes—how to write pieces that create a sense of place and an emotional connection to your reader. Using memory techniques to recall experiences, conjure up your experience of traveling or living abroad, and complete a memoir-like piece. Gain an understanding of commercial travel writing and learn how to pitch ideas for articles to editors.
