It is definitely not as glamorous as it sounds, but it is the most satisying job I can imagine. Italy inspired me to become a travel journalist and to start a travel newsletter. Seeking similar inspiration? What better place to learn about travel writing than in Italy.
If you're in Rome on May 18th, stop by American novelist Linda Lappin's free travel writing workshop at La Libreria Feltrinelli International ( Via V. E. Orlando) at 6 p.m. Lappin promises to help you, " Tap into the "spirit of place" and turn your travel notes and diaries into polished essays." The workshop will last for one hour. Be sure to bring a pen and paper.
