What you choose to do with your life accounts for 40% of your happiness says Dr. Sonja Lyubomirsky, author of The How of Happiness. Traveling is not only fun, but investing in a career or hobby you love will make you happier all around, too.
Good travel writing is more than just describing where you've been and what you've seen. Travel writers must convey readers to places in their imaginations and beyond, using sensual description, strong narrative, unusual imagery and a clear voice. This course is an opportunity to learn those skills that will transport your writing--and your readers--to far away places and strange new worlds.
