I recently participated in a graffiti workshop and loved it! The graffiti artists were generous with their knowledge and helpful in guiding us in useful techniques. I easily lost four hours and left the workshop feeling like I’ve obtained a new set of skills. It was a lot of fun!

What an intense working experience! I collaborated with Will as photographer and, since the very beginning, we’ve both been on the same wave! Definitely not the last time I’ll be working on an assignment with him.

Had such a great time on this course from start to finish, and made new friends on the way. Will (the guy in charge) knows the city inside out and runs the whole thing incredibly. Thanks for the memories!

My time spent in Berlin working on the magazine ‘Techno is not for Everyone’, was unforgettable. It was really special to experience a city from the perspective of a journalist, leading you to a range of places from a critical standpoint.

The best part was meeting the crew and sharing our ideas, and the journey then to a collaborative magazine. I developed new skills in graphic design and photography, as well as fining my writing and editing. You have complete creative license, which is a rare opportunity.

Will is a great team leader and has a great way of bringing people together. I have made friends in Berlin that I will certainly keep in touch with moving forward, and will be sure to visit soon! His effort to making team excursions such as the winter hike and graffiti workshops were really thoughtful and make a great day out.

This is a unique experience enlightening you to an amazing city through a creative and collaborative project. I would highly recommend to anybody who wants to go further in journalism, or has an adventurous spirit!

I can’t speak highly enough of Treetop Travel Journalism!

The writing project gives you the opportunity to explore your own creative ability, promoting independent thinking and also team work. It’s perfect for anyone who wants to gain journalistic experience or broaden their portfolio. I had never worked on magazine design prior to the project but learnt quickly from the great team and thoroughly enjoyed being able to work under guidance to improve this skill.

Additionally the excursions organised made the experience so much more than any other typical ‚learning‘ course that I have ever done. From street art classes to hikes, there is something for everyone and the relaxed atmosphere of the group made everything enjoyable. We couldn’t have been luckier with the team that we had, everyone was diligent, committed and open minded and I definitely made friends for life. A big thank you to everyone involved!

Whether you want to see Berlin for the first time and document your experiences or are already familiar with the amazing city, I can’t recommend this project enough!

Treetop travel journalism was an amazing experience! It gives you the opportunity to discover the city and present your ideas in creative ways. Will was incredible! First of all he creates a safe environment for creativity and expression. Any concept that one thinks about, he has a positive attitude and finds ways to accomplish it. (Very helpful for introverts and people who are scared to share their ideas) Also it was a pleasure to work with such a nice team. The magazine’s diversity came from the fact that, everyone could explore aspects of the city that they were fascinated about. Thus, instead of creating a typical travel guide, the contribution that each made, resulted in an exciting magazine. Another important factor that made this month very fun was the learning process. I didn’t know about magazine design or travel writing, and I learnt both of them in one month. Ljuba was very kind and patient to show us how InDesign works. She introduced us to the program and also gave us constructive criticism, in order to improve aesthetically and technically our designs. In addition, even though i didn’t expect it, i really liked the graffiti workshop! As a person who is terrible at drawing and very clumsy, as soon as i heard that we had to do our own graffiti painting, i felt anxious. However, the artists were willing to guide and help me to execute what i had in my mind. Both of them literally taught me in 4 hours ,how i can bring to life my idea. The final painting exceeded my expectations a lot and it was definitely my favourite day from the month. Finally i would like to say that i am very thankful for being part of this project and for everyone who was involved in it. If you want to learn about Berlin, magazine design and travel writing, treetop travel journalism is the perfect place for you!

I’ve had a fantastic experience being part of the writing project in Berlin. What I loved most was the creative freedom combined with the valuable feedback from Will and the team. It is so exciting to be able to discover places, interview interesting people and then share your perspective with the readers professionally. I also truly enjoyed the graffiti workshop. We had all the materials and real street artists, friendliest people, guiding us. I immersed in the process and unlocked my creative potential. Again, I appreciated the absolute freedom to express myself. Special thanks for the hike around one of Berlin’s most beautiful lakes. It was a trip for mindfulness, meditation and peace. I came home spiritually recharged. I am 100% satisfied with the course. It helped me find out and realize the talents that I’ve always wanted to develop.
