We have added a new reward - A workshop for aspirant travel writers @ £250
Alexander Frater, author of Chasing the Monsoon and Beyond the Blue Horizon, who was also for 12 years Chief Travel Writer at The Obsever and won the Travel Writer of the Year Award 3 years in a row.
and one (depending on dates) of :
Jason Elliott, whose book, An Unexpected Light about his time in Afghanistan with Mujahdeen and his return 10 years later, has been recommended by many correspondents.
Anthony Sattin, Sunday Times journalist and author of many books on Africa including The Pharoah's Shadow, The Gates of Africa, Winter on the Nile.
Clare Conville, CEO, of Conville and Walsh literary agency will join for lunch to talk about getting published.
and chaired by me (I have owned two travel publishing imprints including Cadogan Guides and am also a published travel book writer.....but NB not in the same class as my colleagues on the panel and in the book).
This will be interesting for students looking to make a career in publishing and also for those looking for freelance work. It will take place early next year on a date to be agreed with the participants.
