Learn how to research and produce written content, and receive guidance in establishing a successful career in the fields of environmental journalism and travel writing.
Environmental journalism and travel writing are both powerful tools to advocate for the natural world and to inform the general public on ways to travel sustainably and how to best experience the wonders of nature.
To be a successful environmental journalist you must have an understanding of current environmental concerns; be up to date with environmental policy decisions and organisations; understand scientific studies; have knowledge of historical environmental events, and above all else, possess an enquiring and curious mind. To make it in travel writing you must know how to market yourself properly and how to “move beyond your location”; to create compelling stories from your travels. Travel writing is a hugely competitive field and it is hard to break into this market.
