The Future of Travel Writing Master Class

Istanbul + Cappadocia

2021

We'll see an unfiltered view of one of the world's best cities—Istanbul!—while sharpening our writing skills in this experiential class. However, this isn't your typical travel writing trip: The discourse is built around cutting through the fluff to explore real issues in travel writing, such as the risks and ethics of writing in sensitive countries, and how damaging tropes like the Western gaze, cultural appropriation, and misrepresentation show up in stories. We'll hear from local journalists, photographers, activists, and displaced communities through a nightly dinner series. After Istanbul, we'll head to Cappadocia and use a cave hotel as our writing studio.
