About Peter Carty and his Travel Writing Courses

Peter Carty runs short travel writing courses in London, plus a travel writing distance learning course

Peter's travel writing career spans more than two decades. He is a contributor to The Guardian, The Independent, The Financial Times, The Telegraph, Conde Nast Traveller, Esquire and numerous other publications.  He has broadcast travelogues for the BBC.

He was founding editor of Time Out's travel section. Most years he edited the travel section it won the national award for best travel feature.

Peter is a very experienced travel writing teacher and coach. He has been running his travel writing courses in London since 1999, so this year marks their eighteenth anniversary. The courses are a staple of the travel writing scene.

That's because Peter aims to deliver the best travel writing courses around, equipping participants with the knowledge and skills to succeed in the same way as he has done. Peter offers three guarantees no one else can match:

  • Unlimited ongoing support after the courses. Institutions cannot offer this level of back-up and it is very popular with participants.
  • Unbeatable value for money. It is rare to receive tuition from someone with Peter's experience at these rates. Fees are kept low because he is completely independent and there is no middleman or institution to inflate prices.
  • A clear focus without padding.  A one-day workshop or four evening classes is all you need to get started as a travel writer, in combination with the post-course support. Peter guarantees that his courses are never padded out as a pretext for higher prices.
