Travel Writing for UC Davis Students

Have you recently returned from travels or do you have plans to travel this summer? Are you new to the United States? Do you enjoy encounters with other cultures and take interest in learning about other people?

Writing about your travels is a great way to process your cross-cultural experiences, ensure that the memories of your journeys won’t fade, and share your experiences with a larger audience.

In this workshop, we’ll learn about the characteristics of effective travel writing, discuss venues for sharing your travel writing with readers, and do some practice exercises to get the travel writing juices flowing.

Please bring a laptop or pen and paper to the workshop.

Workshop Leaders

Melissa Bender and Alison Bright are Lecturers in the University Writing Program, and consultants for the Writing Across the Curriculum Program.  

Program Partners

UC Davis Global Affairs, Study Abroad, and the University Writing Program.
