With its kick-off boot camp in Quito, Ecuador in November and one recently completed in Buenos Aires, Argentina, V!VA’s Travel Writing Bootcamps have been getting rave reviews.
Here are just a few of the positive responses our Bootcamps have been eliciting:
“I learned more about travel writing this week than I did during a 2 month internship elsewhere. It has provided me with a realistic insight into the industry, along with all the essential knowledge.”
“In general I learned much more in a very practical way than any of my university courses. Felt like everything necessary was covered very well and not romanticized in the way journalism can often be. Felt the strongest points were the field work, since experience covered anything that may have been misconceived if taught in lectures only.”
“It helped me to better understand whether travel writing is a potential career for me.”
Bootcampers were given daily assignments and by going out into the field and getting hands-on experience, honed their travel writing skills and gained insight into the industry as a whole.
Between May and June of 2008, four more Bootcamps are set to take place in Chile, Nicaragua, Bolivia and Honduras. Space is limited — apply now!
