The dream of trekking through distant lands, teasing your taste buds with the flavors of foreign cuisines, travelling back in time to ancient civilizations, and immersing yourself in the culture of another part of the world is ever alluring. For the storyteller, this is only made more tantalizing by the prospect of sharing your stories from those adventures near and far, working with the virtual office granted by your laptop, smartphone and camera. In this hands-on week-long workshop you will get started on that journey, from branding your travels to starting and fine tuning your own travel storytelling WordPress site and social media feeds. You will build and grow your community in targeted niche areas, partake in a travel storytelling campaign, and explore different avenues for monetizing your travel media content.
