Literary Travel Writing Workshop at the Writers Center with C.M. Mayo April 18th

Some news: I'll be giving a special one day only workshop on Literary Travel Writing at the Bethesda MD Writers Center on Saturday April 18th.
Take your travel writing to another level: the literary, which is to say, giving the reader the novelistic experience of actually traveling there with you. For both beginning and advanced writers, this workshop covers the techniques from fiction and poetry that you can apply to this specialized form of creative nonfiction for deliciously vivid effects. Mayo does not critique manuscripts but rather offers a series of mini-lectures interspersed with exercises, readings, and discussion. The goal is that by the end of the workshop, your writing will be of notably higher quality.
