Travel Writing in the Classroom
Wed 22 Mar 2006
There are still places available on this seminar on 30 March 2006 in London. In a change to the advertised programme, the seminar will now be run by Paul Hyland, the highly-praised travel writer, poet and biographer. This is an exceptional opportunity for any writers interested in working in this area.
Thursday 30th March 2006 10.30am - 4.30pm
Rehearsal Room, First Floor, Bloomsbury Building, 15 Gordon St, London WC1H 0AY

Explore the perimeter of students' worlds and send postcards home. Teach young writers to lead readers across a 'bridge' into important places. Show why writing transforms what happens into experience. Consider how the baggy travel-writing genre relates to the national curriculum. This seminar is aimed at travel writers who wish to work in schools, and at writers who work in schools and hope to use travel writing to enlarge their scope.
