Travel & Words
I am very excited to be attending the upcoming Pacific NW Travel Writers Conference: Travel & Words Spring ’13, March 17-18 in Seaside, Oregon. This annual conference will bring together freelance writers, travel writers, travel bloggers, destination marketing professionals, editors and publishers.
Attendees will enjoy top industry speakers, editor and writer panels, interactive workshops and plenty of networking at Seaside Civic Center. Keynote speakers include Dave Peterson, publisher of Northwest Travel Magazine and Maralyn Hill, past president of the International Food, Wine and Travel Writers Association (IFWTWA).
Writers interested in pitching, writing and selling travel articles in a rapidly changing publishing world will gain story ideas and contacts with regional editors, publishers, and writer colleagues as well as travel and tourism specialists from Oregon and Washington. Workshop Intensives will cover online and print markets that pay, how to benefit more from social media, pitching high-end markets, and ways to earn a living as a freelance writer.
It promises to be very educational as well as a lot of fun!
