The craft of travel writing

How does one capture the sensory data at the heart of the travel experience? How does the writer map the visceral detail of new places, bringing them alive in concrete and specific detail for the reader? 
Panelists discuss their collective works, inspired by their travels. Join Heather Ellis, Shivaji Das and Ben Allmon, with Piia Mustamaki.

Friday, 7 December at 3:45pm to 5:00pm in Room: G11 3.60
