Writer's Block PH invites you to "Travel the Write Way"
[NOTE: The following is a press release from Writer’s Block Philippines]
MANILA, Philippines – We know summer is over, but we’re pretty sure you have a lot of travel experiences that you want to put on paper. Instead of simply writing in your diary – which has become passé – why not start a blog or aim to write for publications? This way, you can share your thoughts, travel tips, and experiences to a much bigger audience.
Writer’s Block Philippines, an organization dedicated to empowering writers, communicators, and creative entrepreneurs, is hosting the "Travel the Write Way" workshop on June 18 from 1 to 6 pm at Fully Booked Bonifacio Global City.
“[This workshop ] is especially ideal for freelance writers and anyone who would like to immortalize their travels and adventures. As long as you like to travel and/or write, and are at least 18 years old, you may sign up for this travel writing workshop. We don’t expect you to have previously published works, nor do we expect you to be the next Pico Iyer,” says Ana Santos, a journalist who focuses on women and gender issues. Santos is a regular columnist in Rappler and Working Mom and as the 2014 Persephone Miel Fellow for the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, her work has been published in The Atlantic and The Washington Post.
“It will be sort of an introductory course on travel writing where we’ll share our own writing guidelines and tips on how to get published,” says Nikka Sarthou-Lainez, a lifestyle writer who was chosen as one of the five Asian representatives for Moleskine’s Modern Nomads in 2012. She is a full-time freelance writer who contributes for various online and print publications.
The duo both left their respective careers to pursue their passion to become full-time freelance writers and put up Writer’s Block Philippines in 2010.
Nina Unlay, Deputy Managing Editor of GRID magazine, will be a guest speaker at the event.
