The main goal of our writing workshops is to assist our students in creating a compelling travel guide to destination cities. The classes are overseen by our writing expert, who is on hand to provide feedback and advice in a supportive and collaborative role, ensuring that everybody contributes and is heard, while also making sure there is focus on the finished product.
The guide is made up of reviews of places in the city – cultural and historical points of interest; restaurants and nightlife; outdoors and nature. The students are also tasked with producing some feature length articles on the destination city’s history, culture and/or current affairs, by heading out to conduct research and interviews.
Our classes are 90 minutes long and run three times per week. They are a place for planning the guide, throwing out creative ideas, focussing on writing ability and developing the knack of talking to a specific target audience.

Our travel journalism classes now take place at the beautiful ‘tuesday coworking’ space in West Berlin.
