The next great workshop from my friends at the American Writers & Artists Institute.

I've attended and spoken at many of Lori's travel writing workshops and always come away meeting great new people and learning something new. If you're serious about travel writing and travel photography, you owe it to yourself to check out this Bermuda workshop.

  • Get hands-on practice applying your new skills -- while you explore one of the world’s most exclusive islands.
  • Discover how travel photographers create a need for their photos -- and double or even triple your photography income.
  • Find out just how easy it is to turn your snapshots into cash, and enjoy the freedom, independence, and travel that freelance photography delivers.
  • PLUS -- Learn all the ins-and-outs of researching and writing photo essays and guidebooks -- including hands-on experience interviewing executives and writing critiques of some of the most famous resorts in Bermuda.
