“Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.”— Louis L’Amour
Great Escape Radio host, Jody Maberry brings us a returning guest, Noreen Kompanik. You can find Noreen’s last interview with Jody here.
Noreen attended the Ultimate Travel Writers Workshop in San Diego four years ago and has been travel writing ever since. During that time she has published 372 articles and counting.
Noreen’s articles have been published in a variety of magazines both online and in print. Her credits include TravelPulse, Links & Libations Magazine, International Living, GoNomad, San Diego Family Magazine, Edible San Diego and more.
She joins Jody this week to discuss and debunk the common myths about travel writing.
Some of the most commons myths about travel writing are:
…You need a journalism degree to be a travel writer
…Magazines all have their own staff writers
…Travel writers don’t make any money
…You must travel to exotic destinations in order to be a travel writer
Noreen busts those myths with information on what you REALLY need to be a travel writer. She also addresses another myth…
…You have to have an “in” with an editor to be published
If you’re interested in travel writing but haven’t given it a try because of these myths, this an episode you don’t want to miss.
