Kiwis have always been big travellers, and have a habit of turning up in the farthest-flung corners of the world. Learn to write about these exotic destinations in a sure and masterful way. Travelling to far-off places can be much more rewarding if you are able to capture the atmosphere and culture of your destination, and then successfully pitch these experiences to a publication. In a global world there is a tremendous appetite to understand other peoples and places. Learn to evoke the sights and smells of the Pacific, America, Latin America, Africa, Asia or Europe. Or learn to more fully experience and write about the many hidden delights of Australasia.

Learn from tutor Yvonne van Dongen, one of New Zealand's most respected travel writers. For a number of years she was Travel Editor of the New Zealand Herald and, subsequently, Travel Editor of onHoliday Magazine. She writes regularly for NZ Life & Leisure, The Australian, AA Directions, Conde Nast Traveller, and North and South Magazine among others. She has won a number of awards for her travel writing, including Best Tourism and Travel Column in the Qantas Media Awards, Lifestyle Journalist of the Year, two Commonwealth Media Awards, and Cathay Pacific Media Writer of the Year.
