This handy guide offers a complete introduction to the craft of travel writing and shows unpublished writers how to identify suitable markets for their work and persuade editors to take a chance on them. It asks the all-important question, 'What is travel writing?' It analyzes your different genre options and explores ways to come up with great ideas and pitch them successfully. There is a strong emphasis on dissecting the technical aspects of creating fresh and vivid prose, including the art of writing unputdownable openings, compelling descriptions and authentic quotes. The book assesses whether and how even novices can make travel writing pay, and delves into the brave new world of blogging. Contains fascinating interviews with key travel writing figures, including the guidebook publisher Hilary Bradt and acclaimed travel writer Will Gray. By appraising extracts from the works of such renowned writers as Gerald Durrell, Peter Matthiessen and Redmond O'Hanlon, as well features from key publications such as Lonely Planet and National Geographic Traveller magazines, the book illustrates exactly what makes memorable writing - and what doesn't.
