2016 Book Passage Travel Writers & Photographers Conference

Travel Blog  •  Jim Benning  •  08.09.16 | 1:46 PM ET

This year’s Book Passage Travel Writers & Photographers Conference—or as many justly call it, summer camp for travel writers—kicks off Thursday in Corte Madera, California. If you’ve ever wanted to study travel writing with a host of accomplished writers and editors, this is the time and place. The four-day conference features classes and panel discussions about the art, craft and business of travel writing and photography—and, just as importantly, hours of conversation over wine and dinner.

I’ll be teaching a series of morning classes with Los Angeles Times staff writer Chris Reynolds.

Also on the faculty are World Hum contributors Lavinia Spalding, Pam Mandel, Candace Rardon, Michael Shapiro, Andrea Johnson, Larry Habegger, Linda Watanabe McFerrin, Spud Hilton and Abbie Kozolchyk. Other luminaries include Don George, Tim Cahill, Elizabeth Harryman, Jeff Greenwald, Janis Cooke Newman and Robert Holmes.

Hope to see you there.

Jim Benning

Jim Benning is the editor and co-founder of World Hum.

Appreciate your the precious information and facts which positive aspects me considerably.If you have a kitchen that does not have an overhang for stools, but you love the concept, consider this imaginative solution. Put a tall table something like this one up against your counter and voilą Instant bar, instant homework station, instant wine and appetizer headquarters, instant welcome.

Over many years I have seen the work of the World Hum contributors and it is certainly a great idea to arrange a “summer camp” for travel writers and of course the all important photographers. 

As well as high profile websites such as World Hum and Lonely Planet there are lots of overlooked blogs that feature guest posts on travel from experienced travellers and professional photograhers.
