Wayfaring Writers

Come write the world with us!

Are you craving adventure? Would you love to learn how to hone your writerly skills of observation and your ability to make your travel writing pop off the page?

Come explore the world…

Travel is the best thing we know to spark your adventurous spirit and inspire creativity. And travel WRITING offers opportunities to be inspired by PLACE and CHARACTER like nothing else.

Our retreats offer a rare opportunity for a small group of writers to immerse themselves in their craft while experiencing the food, drink, art, and history of a foreign location. We’ll revel in ancient architecture, stroll through bustling markets, experience culinary adventures, and enjoy panoramic views from lofty lookout points.

“Let the world change you and you can change the world.” —Che Guevera, The Motorcycle Diaries
