LIVE THE TRAVEL WRITER’S LIFE IN PARIS

Spend five unforgettable days in the City of Light learning the craft of travel writing through daily lessons and hands-on experiences in the field with professional travel journalists. You’ll come away with priceless insider knowledge you can use whether you’re looking to pursue a career in travel writing, earn extra cash with your personal travel blog, or simply plan your next vacation with the discerning eye of a travel pro. There are three workshops scheduled for 2016 in May, August, and October.

Prices start at €1100 for early registration.

In addition to course materials, daily lessons, and afternoon excursions, your workshop fee also includes light breakfast each morning, snacks, all lunches and two dinners with the group. But to really explore Paris like a travel writer, we also provide each participant with:

  • a 7-day Paris travel pass good for all metro, bus and tram travel within the city
  • a handy map booklet locals use to find their way through the winding streets
  • a fully-charged Smartphone with unlimited local and international calls, 4G data, map and metro apps, a chat function to keep in touch with your instructors in real time, and Wifi hotspot to use with your own tablet or Smartphone so you never have to worry about roaming fees.

The Secrets of Paris Travel Writing Workshops are hosted by Heather Stimmler-Hall and Bryan Pirolli, professional travel writers and tour guides living full-time in Paris. Heather is an award-winning travel writer and guidebook author, and founder the Secrets of Paris Newsletter (since 1999, www.secretsofparis.com). Bryan holds a PhD in Communications from the Sorbonne where he teaches journalism, and is a regular contributor to CNN Travel, Time Out Paris and Travel + Leisure.
