Writing

MatadorU

I crafted my travel writing skills with MatadorU’s online travel journalism school.  MatU offers courses in fundamental and advanced travel writing and photography.  They also offer a course in filmmaking.  MatadorU is composed of faculty with real world experience and published work.  Last year MatU upgraded their courses which are far superior than the earlier classes.  If you are serious about wanting to start a travel journalism career, whether part-time or full, MatU is the way to go.

Breakthrough Writing

Mary Sojourner is a published author and a mentor of mine.  She is on the writing faculty for MatadorU’s travel writing program.  Mary offers writing services for writers of all ages and levels.  From jump starting your writing career to coaching to weekend workshops, Mary will work with you from start to finish.  She is available to work with you online as well.
