The Ultimate Livestream Travel Writer’s Workshop

September 14 – 16, 2018
Austin, TX

This is the last and final week to register…

I am so confident we can turn you into a travel writer – someone who’s paid to take luxurious trips around the world or in your own hometown —  in just three days, I’ll give you $600 to attend-from-home.

Offer expires September 18, 2018 at midnight

Join us for 3 days this fall and walk away a travel writer… ready to see your name in print, travel the world, and get paid for work you love!

Dear Travel Writer,

Every attainable goal in life starts with a plan. Quickly followed by good resources, motivation, and the right connections. And that’s exactly what our members get from these live events like the one coming up next week in Austin, TX…

The event itself is now Sold Out but sold out doesn’t have to mean left out when you respond below.

I’m so confident we can give you everything you need in just three jam-packed days, I’ll give you $600 to attend from home…

Because, let’s face it, there are a lot of reasons why travel writing is the best job in the world…

  1. It’s incredibly fun! It’s actually your “job” to relax by the pool at a beautiful seaside resort, play golf with a pro… take a boat excursion to a secluded Caribbean island, and then dine out at a 5-star restaurant – all in the name of research.
  2. You get paid to do things you’d gladly pay for yourself. Publications will cover many travel expenses. Resorts, tourism boards, and tour groups will invite you to stay for free and will roll out the red carpet. And then you get paid for sharing your experiences in travel articles when you get home!
  3. Bragging rights – not only will you get to see your name in magazines, newspapers, and online travel sites, but you will always have the coolest job to talk about at cocktail parties. Just think of how nice it will be to be taken out of line and shown to the front row or VIP lounge…
  4. You will have the chance to discover new things about the world and yourself, exploring the world as a travel writer – not a tourist. You will be encouraged to try new experiences, meet new people from different cultures, and explore places the typical tourist often misses.
  5. You don’t need a degree in journalism or a mastery of the English language to become a travel writer. You don’t need a fancy laptop or lots of money. All you do need is an interest in seeing new places and meeting new people… For everything else, our workshop has got you covered.

And our top three success stories (plus hundreds more doing it all part-time) all came from this very single live event…

If you can take good notes about what you did and where you went, and then recommend — or discourage — others from following in your footsteps, you could earn a few hundred… maybe even a few thousand… dollars for your trouble.

And I’m willing to put $600 on the line to prove it.

In the coming months, you could be taking VIP vacations… getting invited to stay at the best resorts without spending a penny… and seeing your name and articles published everywhere — from local websites to the world’s most prestigious travel magazines and newspapers… Patti Morrow launched her career at this very event a few years ago. She says…

For me, it started with an epiphany. My passion was travel – especially international adventure travel. But because of the cost and time, I could only travel during my two weeks’ vacation. So I decided to find a way to have someone else foot the bill.

As a lobbyist, I’d been published writing about government regulations. Surely, I figured, if I could get published writing about something so dry, surely I could get published writing about something people actually want to read!

But I didn’t know where to start. So I did some online research and came across Great Escape Publishing and was especially interested in their workshop that was coming up at the time in Chicago. I knew I had to go and give this a try or forever wonder if whether I could have made it as a travel writer.

So, over one weekend in July, I attended the workshop. I sat in that classroom, frozen in place, eyes glued to each presenter. I was so excited, I could hardly breathe as story after story and tip after tip came across the stage. These were the tools I needed, and failure was not an option.

In three days, they taught me how to write a saleable article, write to an editor, where to get my first bylines, how to land perks and press trips, how to find magazines that want my stories and how to get assignment letters.

I was hooked. After two years I had so many assignments and I enjoyed travel so much, I quit my full-time job and became a full-time travel writer.

Terri Marshall launched her career at this event, too. Click on the video below to watch her story and see the transformation it’s had on her life transitioning from accountant to full-time travel writer…

And most recently, this is where Noreen Kompanik got her start.

She came as the guest of a friend to the Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshop when we held it in her city of San Diego. Last week on Facebook she announced:

Click below to watch her story and transformation all started at The Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshop…

Patti, Terri, Noreen – they all decided to switch to full-time travel writing but even if that’s not what you want, hundreds of others are living it up part-time too…

Tim Cotroneo had no writing experience when he joined our workshop, took the plunge, and swapped his job in recruitment – his cold, hour-long commute, and “regular life” – for the travel writer’s life… for “everything you dream of!”

He tried to quit his full-time job, but his boss begged him back. So, here’s how he’s juggling both – a job and part-time travel writer so he can spend as much time as possible on white sand beaches…

Workshop Participant, Tim Cotroneo

So, what’s happened to me in the past year since becoming a travel writer?

Well, I’ve received the services of a butler… enjoyed a helicopter thrill ride… and called a best-selling author “neighbor.”

Before travel writing, I thought these things only happened to people in the movies.

Now, my dream-come-true is happening as we speak.

In the Caribbean, on the island of Anguilla, I stayed for free in a five-bedroom, oceanfront villa that included a butler. On the island of Nevis, I played free golf—watched, from a mango tree, by a gallery of vervet monkeys.

Next month, I’m attending a press trip in Turks and Caicos. I’ll be writing about a cabana bar restaurant located smack dab on Grace Bay, a 12-mile beach considered to be one of the most beautiful in the world…

Over the past year, in addition to enjoying airfare, hotel, dining, spa, and excursion perks that are courtesy of having “travel writer” on my business card, my articles generated pay-days ranging from $50 to $800. Travel writing may be the ultimate win/win profession.

Let me set the stage for my travel writer before and after. In 2011, before attending a travel writer workshop, I lived a rather normal existence as a recruiter in the fields of architecture and engineering. When I wasn’t reviewing resumes and job descriptions, I played matchmaker between candidates and employers.

I live in Minneapolis, a city notorious for its not-so-tropical temperatures. My rush-hour commute in the winter could take up to an hour. These white-knuckle treks gave me time to daydream of warmer climates and ditching my snow boots for flip-flops.

The idea of taking on a second life involving talcum-powder beaches, rum punches, and snorkeling adventures seemed far-fetched… but since learning the travel writing tricks of the trade, my life has been rewarded in ways that I can only describe as “priceless.”

All travel writers have a different vision of what living the travel writer life means. You may want to visit Europe and write about Italian vineyards… German beer festivals… and French cuisine.

Or you may be drawn towards adventure vacations, like hiking in the mountains, white-water rafting, or checking out African wildlife on safari.

For me, the mother lode is a Caribbean writing existence.

And, believe it or not, I’m doing just that now…

And, for workshop participant Scott Kendall, travel writing is all about the opportunity to have richer, more meaningful experiences, and meeting interesting new people…

Workshop participant, Scott Kendall, and his family…

An intimate cooking class in the Tuscan hill town of Montepulciano, Italy, in the company of Oscar-winning filmmakers, a charismatic restaurant owner, and a head chef.

A private water taxi picking us up from our complimentary hotel in Venice and delivering us to the doorstep of one of the finest glassmaking factories in Murano for a personal tour.

A beautiful five-course meal with a local Monterosso wine, starting with a warm welcome from the owner, all the while enjoying the view from the best seat in a fabulous seaside restaurant in Cinque Terre.

These are just a few of the experiences that came my way on a trip to Italy after I discovered the perks of being a travel writer.

I have always enjoyed traveling, but, like many people, I have done so on limited information and a modest budget. Being away for a week or two was an extravagance — there was little money left in the budget for indulgences like fancy hotels, fine dining, expensive excursions, and the like. My wife Julie and I often skipped outings because they were too expensive, or we didn’t know the right people, or we were just oblivious to what is out there.

But traveling writing has opened up doors that were never available to us before. It gave us the opportunity to share a Tuscan restaurant’s cozy kitchen with the owner Massimo, the head chef Federico, and another lovely couple who joined us for a very entertaining cooking class. The couple, who happened to be Oscar-winning filmmakers from Australia, were fun and engaging throughout the class.

Because we enjoyed the morning cooking class so much, Julie, our son Jacob, and I later returned to the same restaurant and were treated to one of the most delicious, and eye-appealing meals I have ever had. Dishes included octopus ragout with gnocchi, pigeon breast with “Vin Santo” wine sauce and foie gras, sirloin beef steak from Val di Chiana, and a warm compote of seafood, tuna, shrimp, marinated salmon, squid, mussels, vegetables, and seawater. And then came three delectable desserts, including their popular chocolate “cigar” with tobacco ice-cream and rum sauce.

Travel writing has helped me discover the best places and activities, and reach out to great people at my chosen destinations. In addition to getting some great complimentary perks, I have formed relationships with hotel and restaurant owners, chefs, business-owners, artists, writers, and other interesting people. This has opened so many doors of opportunity that I would never have encountered in my previous life.

And for Theresa St John it was about adding life to her years, not years to her life.

Theresa has been to both of our workshops – The Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshop and our photography workshop that has already passed. Here’s her story and transformation to part-time travel writer…

This is your best — and only — chance in 2018 to transform yourself into a travel writer

This is your last chance to transform this year into something truly extraordinary for yourself.

One of the best things about being a travel writer is that you set your own schedule. No more waking up to a shrill alarm clock or going where a boss or corporate office tells you.

You decide where you want to go… when you want to go… and what experiences you’ll have when you get there.

Join in the Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshop from home, and gain an incredibly fun, income you’ll have for life

This workshop really works

You don’t need a degree in journalism or a mastery of the English language to become a travel writer. And you don’t need a fancy laptop or lots of money, either.

What you do need is an interest in seeing new places and meeting new people… and a willingness to apply the techniques, tricks, and secrets the pros use to write the kinds of stories that editors want to buy… and land the amazing perks just sitting there waiting for you to grab them.

“35 days ago, I walked into The Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshop. Prior to that day, I’d never written a thing. Today, I have a byline!” – Mary Anne L.

“I’m so excited! It’s been two months since I attended the Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshop. Earlier today I received my first payment for an article! I’m a PAID travel writer now!” — Gwyn G.

“Wow I love Saturday surprises! Checked my email this morning and I have my first confirmed press trip of 2017 to go swim with the manatees… in 3 ½ weeks. J I have 1 letter of assignment now to get pitching to some other outlets.” – Betsi Turner Hill

And you don’t even have to travel to make a go of it. After all, where you live is a destination for somebody.

You can easily write about what there is to see and do in your hometown. And when you do that, you’re pretty much guaranteed local celebrity status. That means invites to all sorts of fun stuff — like gallery openings, tourist attractions, new restaurants, and more.

Learn the insider keys to writing — and selling — stories with ease… plus lots, lots more…

It’s too late to join us in person in Austin for our annual live travel-writing workshop, but there is a very special way you can still access every expert, every presentation… every secret tip, scrap of advice, and insider strategy shared… every PowerPoint slide… and every worksheet – when you use your VIP ticket to join in from home.

  • Make the critical industry contacts you need and learn exactly how, step-by-step, you turn an idea into a publishable piece… and then how you actually get what you’ve written into the pages of a magazine, newspaper, newsletter, or website…
  • Find out 11 surefire ways to guarantee editors will love you.
  • Learn why writing about where you live can be so much fun — and such an important first step to take — and how it can easily lead to great paying assignments and amazing perks all over the world.

After just three days, you’ll know how to…

  • Travel on less money than ever… sometimes without spending a single penny…
  • Get your name on the “invitation list” at the world’s best resorts, hotels, bed-and-breakfasts, eco-retreats, and weekend hideaways, so you find yourself getting offers of hospitality and invites to stay… all compliments of the owners…
  • Write a saleable article in as little as 20 minutes (or less)…
  • Start collecting checks for the articles you’ll write, and how to get your name in print faster than you’d ever thought possible…
  • Stretch your vacation dollars — save hundreds of dollars a night — when you defray your travel costs with deeply discounted “press rates” at swank hotels around the world. Find out how it’s done — what to say and what not to say — and what you can do to increase the chances that next time you’ll be asked back for free.

We’ll even introduce you to several real publications looking for your articles, and ready to hand you your first check!

Another part of why our workshop attendees find success is our commitment to connecting you with real-life opportunities – so you can take what you learn and immediately turn it into a byline and a check.

Every year we hold a Publication Expo: A Job Fair for Freelance Travel Writers, where we connect you with publishers that we’ve already reached out to… and that we know are happy to work with you.

We’ve been in touch with the editors at more than a dozen publications. We’ve interviewed them. Really, we picked their brains. And found out — on your behalf — what, exactly, they’re looking for in an article.

We asked about what they like… what drives them nuts… and what you can do to increase your chances of landing a byline there. You’ll learn all of that… and more.

We’ve also included each publication’s writer’s guidelines as well as links to the websites and sample articles from each publication profiled.

In essence, you’re getting a roadmap for scoring a byline in each one.

This is where most workshop participants get their first published story – in one of the publications we’ve already contacted and profiled for you.

Bonnie told us she landed three bylines in publications we told her about.

“The profiles explained exactly what the editors were looking for — in the editors’ own words. And so I just followed the easy directions you laid out there. I immediately landed three stories — within a month of the workshop. It was so exciting to see my name in print. And it gave me my start. 


“Honestly, I feel a little like I cheated the system. I mean, aren’t budding writers supposed to suffer starting out? I sure didn’t. I just did what you showed us how to do. And it got me immediate success. So thanks!”

 — Bonnie C.

“It’s been a good day for this travel writer. I secured a free stay in Portland, OR and in a boutique luxury hotel. I’ll be writing about hotels in Portland for Plus, I just got a call telling me I’ve got a check in the mail for my article in a regional food magazine Edible Delmarva… Thanks to all of you who have helped me!” — Kurt Jacobson

All in all, the information you’ll gain in this workshop could, quite literally, change your life — it has already for so many past attendees who, today, are working travel writers.

You might reasonably expect it to cost thousands of dollars. After all, you’re getting extraordinary access to industry experts and guidance from professional writers who will share with you the insights and secrets they’ve learned over many years on-the-job. But it won’t cost anywhere near that. I’ll give you the numbers, and a link to your last chance VIP, $1,700 savings ticket in a minute.

But first…


Let me introduce you to the experts you’ll be 

hearing from…

Jennifer Stevens is the author of The Ultimate Travel Writer’s Program (our home-study program) and architect of this workshop.

Jen is the Executive Editor of International Living and long-time travel writer having spent the balance of the last decade gallivanting around Latin America, the Caribbean, and Europe, writing about the best locales for overseas travel, retirement, and investment.

From her you’ll get the insider’s scoop about what editors are really after and blueprints for articles you can follow so easily you’ll find your pieces published in no time. Plus you’ll learn how to polish your articles in just such a way that editors will be transfixed.


“Jen was able to take a group of anxious inexperienced students and turn them into confident travel writers in only 3 days!” — Bernadine Birdsong

“Jennifer’s presentations are chock-full of practical useful information delivered in a lively and interesting way and her experience and credentials are solid and authentic.” — Sana Ruddick

Kyle Wagner is a freelance writer, former food critic and former long-time Travel Editor at the Denver Post. Kyle dished out her opinions on dining in Denver for 12 years before she moved to the Post. Her love of food found her traveling the world in search of the best meals, which served her well when the previous travel editor retired from the Post and Kyle got the job. She’ll share her invaluable insider knowledge of what makes travel editors tick, how to write an attractive query, how to break into newspaper travel sections, and how to add a food element — ever more indispensable these days — into your travel stories, making them irresistible to editors.

“I loved her part of the workshop… she gave awesome tips on contacting an editor.” — Yolanda Biggs

“It would be hard to find a more knowledgeable or experienced editor.” — Alicia Dietrich

Ian Aldrich is the Deputy Editor for Yankee Magazine and a native New Englander. For the last decade, Ian has worked and freelanced for Yankee, writing feature stories and overseeing the magazine’s digital platform.

In this last year alone, Yankee has expanded by leaps and bounds – including producing its own television show – and in Austin, Ian will share with you everything you need to know about how the travel writing industry is changing and show you exactly what you can to do to stay ahead of the curve.

“Ian was genuine and humble in his approach and conveyed a real interest in the attendees.” — Beth W.

“Ian is knowledgeable, funny, and as layered as the publication he represents.” — Carolyn B.

Tracey Minkin is the Senior Editor of Travel and Features at Coastal Living, an award-winning luxury magazine and digital brand specializing in homes, destinations, food, style, and personalities from the coasts of North America and beyond. During her career, Tracey has worked as a freelance writer and as an editor for regional and national magazines – so she knows exactly how to pitch to many different kinds of publications. Her writing has been anthologized in collections and has won both regional and national awards; she was a contributing author to Fodor’s The Thirteen Colonies, a historical/cultural travel guidebook; and she was the founding editor of a Providence, Rhode Island-based digital news and information platform, GoLocalProv.

“Tracey’s knowledge, experience and personality are exactly what beginning travel writers need.” – Andy Wilson

“Loved Tracey’s advice and her publication. The fact that she started as freelance and then landed the editorial job at the magazine is inspiring.” – Gayle Irwin

“I appreciate hearing Tracey’s perspective of print and digital and felt it most relevant to both the evolving publishing landscape and my personal interests.” – Michele Bliss

And more…

You’ll also be introduced to several special “guest presenters,” too.

These are people who hire writers just like you and who are always in the market for stories they can pay for to fill up their pages.

These “guest editors” will talk to you about their own particular niches and how to guarantee you can break in with ease. For instance, you’ll hear about food writing — how to write about restaurants, what to make sure you include in your reviews, tricks for evaluating cafés, bars, and restaurants, and more…

Plus, we’ve invited a wide variety of freelance writers who will share with you the lessons they’ve learned over the years and the secrets they know to apply every time they sit down to write.

This is the kind of stuff it would take you years to figure out on your own. But our speakers will spare you the trouble, frustration, and time… and just cut to the chase.

That way you’re sure to be using your time and energies wisely. There’s no more efficient — or fun — way to learn this stuff and guarantee you’re up-and-running, enjoying the perks of a writer’s life fast.

After joining us at one of our workshops in Argentina, Sandra K. sold an article about Buenos Aires apartments within just a month of her return home.

And another participant from our workshop in San Diego successfully sold the same article she wrote during our program three times — and got paid for it all three times, too.

Theresa St John who you hear from often in our newsletter sold the article she worked on in class, too, and this is something that happens again and again with the people who attend these live events.

We’re also including something else very special — and useful — for wanna-be travel writers.

We looked back at our most popular presentations, the ones attendees said really helped power their success. And we’re giving you access to a presentation on how travel writers can add photos to their stories — for sometimes double or triple the pay — by seasoned professional photographer Efraín M. Padró. We’re pulling this straight out of our vault, just for you this year and it’s not available anywhere else.

Your Free Gift

Practical (“You can do it with a point-and-shoot”) 
lessons from a professional photographer, who’ll show you how to capture simple images to accompany your articles…

And double or triple your pay!…

Unlike most travel writing workshops out there we’ve also integrated something else very special — and useful — into this program. A revealing bonus presentation by a seasoned professional photographer. And while Efrain won’t be on the ground with us in Austin, you’ll still get a chance to learn his tricks of the trade from the comfort of your own home with a private replay of his most popular workshop session from past events.

Efraín M. Padró is a full-time professional photographer specializing in nature and travel subjects. His work has appeared in Outdoor Photographer, Frommer’s Budget Travel, Geographic Expeditions catalogs and other publications. And he is the author of The Photographer’s Guide to New Mexico. Adding photos is a great way to sell more articles and land more bylines… but also to up your income. In fact, send the right photos with your story and that can easily double what you make on it.

It’s true that photos help you sell your articles. And it’s also true that you don’t need lots of experience or expensive equipment to take the kinds of shots that can illustrate your stories beautifully.

In this bonus session (a special gift), you’ll learn some easy techniques you can put into practice immediately to take better shots every time. You’ll find out how to easily transform a vacation snapshot into a photo you can sell. Plus find out how to put together an article-photo package that will have editors knocking at your door.

Of course, all of that is just a small sampling of the kind of real-world insights this program delivers…

“My article on Emerald Reef Golf Course and Grand Isle Resort in Great Exuma is the cover story on the January issue of Golf Vacations Magazine. They also used one of my photos as the cover shot!” — Tim Cotroneo

“I live in San Felipe Baja Mexico. I visited Guerrero Negro in Baja to go whale watching. I wrote an article on this fabulous experience and it has been published in the San Felipe newsletter which comes out December 15th. I’m very excited about this as it’s my first publication. I will be featured in the newsletter every month as a travel writer!” — Laurel Ross

When you join us for our biggest travel writing event of the year, over these three days, you’ll get real “boots on the ground” advice from experts who are making it happen themselves. They’re all generous with their time and expertise, and will be available to answer your questions.

They firmly believe that anybody – armed with the right secrets and a commitment to use them – can make money and travel better as a travel writer.

The world’s best locations – on THEIR tab – and they’ll pay you to write about it!

If you want to get paid to dine at delectable restaurants… visit your favorite haunts… and turn your insider knowledge of your own hometown into checks that land in your mailbox…

If you want to play on first-rate golf courses and ski the best slopes… find out how to land an incredible deal for a fraction of the usual rate, or maybe no charge at all…

If you want to spend your next birthday on a white-sand beach in Bora Bora… sip tea in an Irish countryside cottage… or spend a day sampling the finest wines and cheeses France has to offer… then this workshop is for you

This is what Monday mornings look like…when you’re a travel writer…

There are plenty other “writing workshops” out there. But I want to be clear — this program is different than anything else you’ll find. It’s not the kind of thing where you just hear from some writers who share their stories to inspire you.

We do that, too, mind you. I mean, I guarantee you’ll come away invigorated and ready to really jump into travel writing. But we take things a few steps further. We hand you a roadmap you can follow to really make it happen.

Our experts will actually give you a success plan you can work through — day-by-day — so you can have an article to an editor within weeks. We’re all about action.

For the first time this year we’re bringing these income earning travel writing opportunities directly to you!

This workshop is bigger and better than ever before — with a broader scope, more speakers, more sessions, and more on-the-ground insights. Truth is, there’s a lot of change happening in the travel-writing industry right now, and we’re making sure you don’t miss out.

For the many years we’ve been hosting these workshops, participants have always had to attend in person to get full access and opportunities for live interaction and networking.

That’s why I’m so excited to be offering this option for attending our workshop virtually!

This means you can join in from anywhere in the world you have internet access… whether that’s your home office, a couch with a cup of coffee, or a café in Costa Rica…

You’ll have access to every single live presentation, question, comment or tit-bit of advice shared… Lifetime Access to the recordings, so you needn’t worry if you want to recap later or you’d simply prefer to tune in for an hour or two in the mornings, and cover the event at your own pace… You’ll be able to get all of your questions answered.

And do it all in the company of like-minded people, keen to learn, seek out the best travel writing opportunities, meet new friends, and HAVE FUN!

There will even be an exclusive Facebook group for participants to network with fellow travel writers, staff members, and experts, long after the event is over. We all know, you’ll succeed a lot better, and have more fun, with the support of friends sharing the same journey.

We’ll introduce you to a system that, when coupled with a bit of persistence, is so powerful, our past workshop participants are getting their work published like there’s no tomorrow.

The information you’ll gain at this workshop could, quite literally, change your life — it has already for so many of our past participants who, today, are working travel writers.

Here’s what our workshop architect, Jennifer Stevens, has to say about the program:

“… we provide step-by-step instruction on exactly what you need to do to put an article together. Follow these formulas, and you’ll always know what to put first and what to write next.”


“And then, of course, we show you what to do after that, how — and where — to sell this article you’ve just written.”

Jennifer Stevens
Architect of The Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshop

Comments from our last Livestream Event…

“I LOVED attending via LiveStream and was so grateful that GEP extended the opportunity to do so. I honestly loved every minute. I felt almost like I was really there.” — Shea McNaughton


“The information was new and up to date and really applicable! I was really inspired by all of it. I think it was the best workshop you’ve ever given!!! (Just wish I could have been there in person!!!)” — Caroline Maryan


“I have wanted to participate in one of your workshops for YEARS but couldn’t because of work or expenses. This made it possible for me to finally put the program into action… I learned more in that Livestream weekend and the following weeks, than I have in the last 20 plus years of reading “how to” books. The interaction and feedback makes all the difference in the world and each instructor was inspiring in their own way. Thanks so much for this workshop!” — Carla Walsh


“Watching the conferences rather than only hearing them is so much better! It changes the whole event… It makes it REAL.” — Celia Furt


“This workshop has been fantastic. Right from the start, it was packed full of information… And the great thing is, we have the recordings. I know I’ll be watching them… a few dozen times.” — Pippa Wyvill

Last chance for a discounted VIP ticket to what could be the biggest event in your life


We could reasonably charge $2,000 to $3,000 for an event of this caliber, not to mention the accessibility to the professional writers and editors on staff. And it would be worth every penny.

Just a handful of publishable articles and your first few travel perks can earn you that much, and more. Not to mind the lifetime value of a skill you can use to create an income from something you love to do, “work” that actually puts the zest and fun into your days! But when you secure your seat today, you can take advantage of a BIG discount.

The full price of this event to attend live was $1,997 + the cost of hotel + airfare, meals and more averaging more than $3,100 per person. Yet you’ll pay less than half that to attend from your favorite chair AND STILL get to speak to our pros.

I am so confident this event can launch your new travel writer’s life, I will pay you $600 to join us. Your ticket costs just $1,397 (money you can recoup with travel perks and the sale of your first few articles, and a savings of almost two grand in expenses!!).

Plus, as I mentioned above, you’ll have lifetime access to the recordings if you want to pause a session, or step away from your computer for a bit and come back to it.

… or months down the line you want to check the contact details on a publisher you know likes to work with “newbies”, and what to say when you’re asking for that press trip…

It’s all there whenever you need professional advice, and don’t forget you can reach out to your new friends in the exclusive Facebook group for support and advice too! This is your new tribe.

Join us from home, and you’ll learn one simple key to getting every article you write published… the easiest articles to sell and resell… how to get in the door (and into print)… how to parlay your travel writer status into coveted perks… and much, much more…

Plus, you’ll also receive:

  • All the worksheets and handouts we share at the live event — posted conveniently online so you’ll have access to all the sure-fire, time-saving resources you need to put what you learn into practice immediately.
  • Our Publication Expo Profiles of publishers and editors we know are happy to work with you. You’ll get interviews with the editors about what they’re really looking for, writer’s guidelines, editorial calendars, sample articles, and more. Exactly the insights you need to land bylines and checks fast and with ease.
  • A special photo presentation from a professional photographer on how to add simple photos to your articles, so editors will love you, and you can triple your income.  
  • How to Earn Back Your Workshop Fee in 90 Days or Less. Put the tactics and strategies in this participants-only guide to the test and you’ll recoup your investment back in no time.
  • Lifetime access to our private group forum where you can ask questions.

You won’t be just listening in on presentations, you’ll be taking part in practical exercises, too, from right there at home. So you’ll walk away with a publishable article in hand by the end of this workshop.

Diana R. said, “My favorite luxury travel and spa writing perk was when my husband and I spent a week floating French canals on a 12-passenger barge — entirely free of charge.”

Stan S. says one of his top three all-time favorite travel writing perks was “my pampered cruise through Patagonia around Cape Horn, the southernmost land mass in the world, with excursions that included walking amid thousands of penguins and sipping cocktails from atop a glacier.” A runner up included a cruise through Alaska’s Inside Passage. Mark’s two-page feature article won him a week-long sailing trip for two in Croatia!
