Learn Journalism and Travel Writing

The truth is my years as a print journalist were some of the best days of my life and winning five newspaper association press awards was the icing on the cake.

I didn’t have demanding editors pressuring me to take on additional assignments and I rarely turned down assignments but I knew I couldn’t pass on an offer to cover services and amenities at lodging destinations in a popular Northeastern Pennsylvania resort region. With more than 1,400 published features’ stories to my credit and eight years writing for the same publications, I accepted my first freelance travel writing position with a tourism website.

Oh, rest assured, reporting on local, national, and international travel is exciting but even more so, when you can tailor your itinerary to reflect your interests and skills. You owe it to yourself to be part of the planning process.
