Travel Writing Workshop and Travel Writing Evening Class
Testimonials For The Travel Writing Courses
"The travel writing workshop has proven immensely beneficial. I entered a
travel writing competition announced by The Independent, and I won!
The prize consists of a bursary to finance a trip around Europe.
For the duration of the trip I am keeping a blog, which will be
hosted on Independent Online. This is an amazing opportunity.
Thank you for your support and advice."

"Peter's travel writing workshop has given me an invaluable push into travel writing! Since coming along I've been fortunate enough to win the Guardian's travel writing competition, as well as getting my travel features published in The Telegraph, Independent on Sunday and Wanderlust."
The travel writing workshop was superb - well-organised, well-presented and well-taught.
Peter is an excellent teacher - positive, witty, engaging and incisive.
He clearly has a huge knowledge and wide understanding of travel writing
and the travel writing business, and a gift and an enthusiasm for sharing
what he has learned. I have to say that the workshop was one of the
best-taught, most-focussed, most challenging and most enjoyable days
of training or learning that I have ever experienced.
"I'm one of the winners of the Guardian's travel writing competition.
"I have a couple of features coming up in the Independent soon.
My client list is growing and I will shortly be off to Japan for three
weeks on an assignment, so life is good!"
"I run courses and conferences for a living and have to attend too many for my sins. Many are slick but lack substance. Your travel writing workshops are the opposite. You create a strong sense of insight into the travel writer's world: the relaxed, informal style and individual conversations make for a very satisfying and authentic experience."
"I've made the nationals! This was my aim when I came on your travel writing workshop in London, and it's happened a lot sooner than I'd anticipated. So thank you again, your advice was very useful."
"Since coming on the travel writing workshop I have started to be published in a range of national newspapers and magazines. Peter's editing help with my drafts has been invaluable."
"Undoubtedly the travel writing workshop was a big push in the right direction for me. I'm now based in Barcelona and I've been able to sell regular articles to a list of editors. Publications I've written for so far include Conde Nast Traveller."
"My Peak District piece is in the Sunday Express today. That wouldn't have happened if I hadn't attended one of your travel writing classes. I've found out that there's more to it than going somewhere interesting, writing it up and sending it off to a publication thinking they're bound to print it. From pitching to persistence, there is an established process to getting published and you've shown me how. Thanks for sharing your knowledge."
