I Will "Pay" You $200 to
Get Your Travel Writing Career Off the Ground
BUT YOU MUST ACT FAST!
This event takes place September 18-20, 2015
Dear Future Travel Writer,
There are a lot of reasons why you should try your hand at travel writing…
- It’s Fun! You can relax by the pool at a beautiful seaside resort and call it work, and then eat out at a 5-star restaurant and call it research.
- You get paid to do things you’d gladly pay for yourself. Publications will cover many travel expenses, and hotels and restaurants typically will roll out the red carpet for travel writers. Plus, your vacation can become a potential tax write off.
- Bragging Rights – not only will you get to see your name in magazines, newspapers and online travel sites, but you will also always have the coolest job to talk about at cocktail parties. Just think of how nice it will be to be taken out of line and shown to the front row or VIP lounge…
- You will have the chance to discover new things about the world and yourself. You will be encouraged to try new things and meet new people, and you will see places that the typical tourist will often miss.
What’s more, with this special offer...
I’ll even pay you $200 to get your new travel career started.
Here’s how it works…
Take a Trip to Denver and Return Home a Travel Writer
Join us in the “Mile High City” of Denver, Colorado this September 18-20 and experience one of America’s most diverse cities as you learn how you can make a living doing something that feels like a never-ending vacation.
In some ways Denver is the world in miniature, it’s bursting with theaters… galleries… museums… diverse cultures… Here, you’ll find everything from quirky “old west” museums and the grave of Buffalo Bill… to moody jazz clubs and cozy microbreweries…to some of the world’s best food.
Whether you fancy a day-trip to the Rockies, sampling the best brews in the city’s “Beer Triangle,” or following the trails of prehistoric creatures at Dinosaur Ridge, you’re in for a fun vacation.
Only this vacation will be so much better than your average trip. Because on this trip, you’re also going to learn how to turn your future travels into paid vacations where resorts, restaurants, hotels and magazine publishers foot the bill and you collect handsome paychecks for your “work.”

Just Like These Past Attendees, You Could Turn
Your Travels into Something Much, Much More…
Under enormous cypress trees, and amid blossoming gardens, Sandra K. spent four pampered days perched at the edge of a blue lake in southern Chile, surrounded by 11 million acres of protected Patagonian wilds. From her own log cabin, she looked out over the glimmering water to the white-tipped mountains that rise from the lake at a luxurious eco-resort and spa.
There, she enjoyed a hot stone massage in the spa. Walks in the pristine woods. Excursions to waterfalls and glaciers. At night, local wines and organic meals enjoyed under the stars …
And it was all free. Didn't cost her a penny.
In fact, she jotted down some notes about what made the experience special. And then she sold her account to an online travel magazine. And she's been in touch with a few more publications, too, offering them stories as well. In the end, she'll turn a tidy profit on that trip.
Before she attended an Ultimate Travel Writer's Workshop, she'd never penned an article.
But now she's exploring the world as a travel writer (most often on somebody else's dime).
Or, like Wendy V. When Wendy was downsized out of her job as a healthcare administrator in Sergeant Bluff, Iowa, she decided to follow her passion for travel and find a way to make it pay for itself.
So she attended an Ultimate Travel Writer's Workshop, and it launched her new career in a matter of days. Her stories have been published in Marco Polo, International Living, The Traveler, Go Nomad, Traveler's Tales, and beyond.
She told me she recently landed five free tickets to San Diego's Wild Animal Park (a $100+ value) … just because she knew how to ask for them (a skill she learned at our workshop)!
And following our Ultimate Travel Writer's Workshop in New York, attendee Robin C. struck up a conversation with an employee of the Guggenheim Museum and ended up being invited inside to look around and to interview him. As a follow up, she's been invited back for grand openings, with VIP access to the artists. Within a handful of weeks after the workshop, she'd already sold an article.
2015 Could Be Your Year to Travel Farther, Live Better, and Earn More!!
These 9 members took the plunge, joined one of our workshops, and just look at all the fun places they went last year… thanks to their travel writing skills…
You know, if there's any lesson to be learned from these real-life success stories, it's this: You don't need a degree in journalism or a mastery of the English language to become a travel writer. You don't need a fancy laptop or lots of money.
What you do need is an interest in seeing new places and meeting new people … and a willingness to learn the techniques, tricks, and secrets the pros rely on to write the kinds of stories that editors want … and land the amazing perks just sitting there waiting for you to grab them.
And this September in Denver, that's exactly what our team of professional writers and editors will show you at our 2015 Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshop.
You Can Do This! Even if All You've Ever Written
is a Postcard Home to Your Friends …
We'll show you exactly what you need to know. It's simple. And you're going to find it not only enjoyable … but exciting, too.
Now, you could travel and write full-time if you wanted to. But you certainly don't have to make that sort of commitment to cash in on the glamour, the VIP treatment, the perks.
Travel writing is something you can easily do in your spare time. No experience necessary.
And you don’t even have to travel to make a go of it. After all, where you live is a destination for somebody.
So you can easily write about what there is to see and do in your hometown. And when you do that, you're pretty much guaranteed local celebrity status. That means invites to all sorts of fun stuff — like gallery openings, tourist attractions, new restaurants, and more …
This fall, on the ground in Denver, we'll show you exactly how it's done.
You'll walk away with easy, proven techniques for landing no-cost trips … real-world advice for turning your travel know-how into cash … tried-and-true ways to transform your vacations into tax-deductible adventures … and more …
And, you’ll be in one of the best parts of the world to get started. We’re going to show you this city through writer’s eyes.
Tourists from all over the world visit here… and there’s a great need for travel articles about Denver…
Some of the world’s best food is found here. You can write about it.
World class artists display their work in Denver. You can write about them…
A new sculpture exhibit here, a monument restored there. A touring Broadway show opens… a renowned author visits… A national conference… All are cause for publicizing a city and its attractions.
You can write about the home of the “Unsinkable Molly Brown” or the Museum of Miniatures, Dolls & Toys … Take a day trip to the Rocky Mountains … Discover why, despite the fabulous restaurants and eateries, USA Today lists Denver as one of the top 10 thinnest cities in the U.S…
Publishers need this information… badly. They’ll pay you for it. You’ll get your name in print, and before you know it, editors could be banging down your door begging for more.
“35 days ago, I walked into The Ultimate Travel Writer's Workshop in San Francisco. Prior to that day, I'd never written a thing. Today, I have a by-line!”
— Mary Anne L.
This workshop seems like a ten-week course condensed into one.
— Johnnie M.
"This workshop teaches good, practical how-to focus. If none of us publishes anything after this, we’ll only have ourselves to blame!"
— Dee O.
Ordinary Folks, Extraordinary Successes.
This Workshop Really Works!
I've already told you about Sandra and Wendy and Robin — all past workshop attendees who put what they learned into action and are, today, getting paid to travel. But they're hardly alone in their success.
Here's a story that'll make you green with envy. Duane and Harlene H. enjoyed an entire summer of travel … free. And all they had to do in exchange was take good notes about what they did and then make suggestions about whether they'd recommend it to others — or not.
All told, they visited 23 different dude ranches in Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana over a three-month period, staying for free an average of three days at each ranch. The total value of their summer stays? About $55,000 … and they didn't pay anything. Not one cent.
What's more, they wrote an article for Steamboat Magazine, a high-end coffee-table publication based in Steamboat Springs, CO that comes out twice a year. And they were paid for their work.
And then there's Roy Stevenson. Roy came to our workshop a few years ago in Portland, and he's sold over 800 articles since then, in over 150 magazines and newspapers.
Since Portland, he's traveled all over the world – Singapore, Europe, Latin America, and Australia -- and he’s barely spent a lick of his own money. Plus he's got his name in print all over the place. And he's having a good time, to boot. He wrote to say —
"I really am using every scrap of knowledge I picked up at the workshop in Portland, and it really does work … I'm quite amazed because I've only had one article query rejected by all the magazines I pitched … and the best part is I am enjoying it so much."
— Roy S.
You know, you can be, too … and a lot faster than you probably imagine.
Join us for these three power-packed days, and within a handful of weeks you could be getting paid to travel, seeing your name in print, and enjoying some unbelievable perks, too …
That's because this workshop isn't filled with theoretical fluff. We tell you how, in the real world, this industry works. And then we show you — step-by-step — exactly how to navigate your way through it.
It means you can avoid the pitfalls that trip up most new travel writers. Instead, you can steer yourself directly to the by-lines you need to guarantee your own success.
Our Workshop Attendees Quickly Find Success
Following our Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshops, the success stories always come pouring in. Here are just a few notes I received from attendees...
“This week I've had an article published in Allways Traveler, and one more accepted for publication with them in the next few weeks. Today I got an article accepted for next month's Travel Post Monthly. I've got 2 more articles being published in Vacation Rental Travels in 2015. Everything we learned at the Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshop is really working!!”
“My article on Emerald Reef Golf Course and Grand Isle Resort in Great Exuma is the cover story on the January issue of Golf Vacations Magazine. They also used one of my photos as the cover shot!”
“I live in San Felipe Baja Mexico. I visited Guerrero Negro in Baja to go whale watching. I wrote an article on this fabulous experience and it has been published in the San Felipe newsletter December issue. I'm very excited about this as it’s my first publication. I will be featured in the newsletter every month as a travel writer!”
— Laurel Ross
And believe me, this is only the beginning of the heap of success stories that are piling up on my desk. People are starting to live out their dreams … and you can, too …
“To become a top-notch travel writer and/or photographer you can spend three years gaining experience or three days attending the Ultimate Travel Writer's workshop. Hint: Attend the workshop.”
— Sean Alexander
"I’m at a stage in my life where I am looking to reinvent myself and have often felt I might like to pursue travel writing. This is an excellent beginning, motivating and stimulation – I’m hooked."
— Viki H.
Special Publication Expo Delivers Real Publications Looking for Your Articles
In fact, we're so committed to connecting you with real-life opportunities … to helping you take what you learn in Denver and immediately turn it into a by-line and a check … that we're putting on a very special Publication Expo: A Job Fair for Freelance Travel Writers during the program for everyone who attends the workshop.
It's your chance to gain insider information about what more than a dozen different publications are looking for from travel writers … and to learn exactly what you need to do to pitch them your ideas.
We've been in touch with the editors at all these publications. We've interviewed them. Really, we've picked their brains. And we've found out — on your behalf — what, exactly, they're looking for in an article.
We asked about what they like … what drives them nuts … and what you can do to increase your chances of landing a by-line there.
You'll learn all of that at the Publication Expo … and more. Plus we'll have their writer's guidelines available as well as sample issues of each featured publication. In essence, you'll come away with a roadmap for getting a by-line in each one.
And our own experts will be on hand to talk about these newspapers, magazines, and online publications. And they'll share with you, too, their own hard-won insights about the smartest ways to increase the number of articles you sell and to bump up your income on every piece you write.
Since we hosted our very first Publication Expo eight years ago, the successes they’ve produced are really unbelievable.
Today, it’s where most attendees get their first published story – in one of the publications profiled at The Expo.
One attendee told us she landed three by-lines in publications we profiled at the Publication Expo.
I asked her about her experience, and she said …
"You made it so easy. I mean, I walked around to all the tables at the Expo (drinking my glass of wine — thanks for that — very classy to have cocktails there). I picked up all this great material about each publication. And it included a sample issue of each one, so I could read those at home later and really familiarize myself with them.
"The profiles explained exactly what the editors were looking for — in the editors' own words. And so I just followed the easy directions you laid out there. I immediately landed three stories — within a month of the workshop. It was so exciting to see my name in print. And it gave me my start.
"Honestly, I feel a little like I cheated the system. I mean, aren't budding writers supposed to suffer starting out? I sure didn't. I just did what you showed us how to do. And it got me immediate success. So thanks!"
— Bonnie C.
Practical ("You Can Do it with a Point-and-Shoot")
Lessons from a Professional Photographer, too …
In addition to the Publication Expo, we've integrated something else very special — and useful — into this program. A revealing presentation by a seasoned professional photographer.
It's true that photos help you sell your articles. And it's also true that you don't need lots of experience or expensive equipment to take the kinds of shots that can illustrate your stories beautifully.
In this important session, you'll learn some easy techniques you can put into practice immediately to take better shots every time. You'll find out how to easily transform a vacation snapshot into a photo you can sell. Plus find out how to put together an article-photo package that will have editors knocking at your door.
Of course, all of that is just a small sampling of the kind of real-world insights this program delivers …
“Many thanks for the wonderful seminar. It was most worthwhile from all aspects and we would attend another in a heartbeat. Material covered was extensive but well presented. We were impressed by our well-qualified and informed instructors.”
— Duane and Harlene H.

Would You Like to "Work" for Me?
Right now, I need travel stories for three of my print publications (including International Living) and several web sites. More specifically, I need some people to write these stories.
If you are interested in coming to "work" for me, you might find yourself exploring the whitewashed towns of Sicily, in the middle of the Mediterranean. Or you could visit the beaches and the wild nightlife of southern Spain. Or maybe you'd prefer to investigate a chain of tropical islands off the coast of Panama, a notorious, 19th-century pirate hideout.
In fact, International Living has published articles about each of these destinations — and I've got dozens of others in mind, places I'd like people to write about for me.
If this idea interests you, I encourage you to attend this Denver workshop. I assure you: The Ultimate Travel Writer's Workshop lives up to its name. In fact, I've already had the great pleasure of paying for and publishing articles written by attendees of past workshops.
We have a tremendous need for well-written travel articles, so if you are interested in the lifestyle this kind of work offers, I urge you to register now.
This is your chance to make that dream a reality. I encourage you to attend.
Jackie Flynn, Publisher, International Living

Find out how it's done — what to say and what not to say — and what you can do to increase the chances that next time you'll be asked back for free.
- Learn the delicate art of arranging a complimentary trip — a seasoned travel writer spills her secrets (including sample letters you can copy) and tells you exactly what to say and who to say it to.
- And more…
"Best workshop I've attended in many, many years — focused, practical tools and templates for successful travel writing and the nuts and bolts of how to get published."

This is Your Best — and Only — Chance
in 2015 to Transform Yourself into a Travel Writer
with Our Experts to Guide You in Person
We're only hosting one event like this in 2015. So if you're ready to start getting paid to travel, I encourage you to reserve your place right now. Sign up today and you’ll receive a HUGE discount. Don’t sit on the fence on this one, seats go fast and this discount will expire soon.
Our speakers are extraordinarily generous in sharing their hard-won secrets. And that means you can be certain to accelerate your success and cut years off your learning curve.
In fact, that's one of the things our workshop attendees always make a point of telling us: How much they appreciate the friendliness and accessibility of the experts we have on hand. Our speakers aren't folks who just stroll up to a podium, deliver a "speech," and leave.
Instead, they hang around. They answer questions. They tell you their stories. And they make you laugh. They share their own experiences (including the mistakes — so you don't make them). And they guarantee that this long weekend will be not just eye-opening and inspirational — but a lot of fun, too.
Here’s what last year’s attendees had to say about their experiences and the reasons behind highly recommending this workshop to their friends…
You'll Find Our Speakers to Be Smart, Funny, Experienced, and Accessible
You'll hear from …
Jennifer Stevens will be leading our program this summer. She's the author of The Ultimate Travel Writer’s Program (our home-study program) and architect of this workshop.
Jen is the Executive Editor at International Living, and she spent a decade gallivanting around Latin America, the Caribbean, and Europe, writing about the best locales for overseas travel, retirement, and investment.
In prior incarnations, Jen wrote market research reports for the Foreign Commercial Service at the U.S. Embassy in Paris, taught English on an island in the Indian Ocean as a Peace Corps Volunteer, and cut her teeth in the magazine world as a business reporter for Trade & Culture Magazine.
Always generous with her know-how and infinitely approachable, she'll be on hand this September to give you the insider’s scoop about what editors are really after and hand you blueprints for articles you can follow so easily you’ll find your pieces published in no time. Plus she'll show you how to polish your articles in just such a way that editors will be transfixed.
"Jen is energetic, exciting and engaging. A good presenter who is clearly enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge."
— Tselani R.
"Jen is one of the best presenters I’ve ever experienced. She is on time, gets to the point and goes beyond “fluff.” She is a fantastic storyteller who is smart, articulate, down to earth, friendly. She is a real person who shares her expertise willingly."
— Angella H.
Steenie Harvey will be joining us as well — from Ireland, where she hangs her hat when she's not on the road. An accomplished and proven freelancer, Steenie is International Living’s roving Euro-editor.
She also writes about travel, folklore, and real estate for publications like The Daily Telegraph, The Independent, and the Washington Post. Recent travels have taken her to Malta, the Greek islands, the jungles of Malaysian Borneo, and Italy.
Adept at landing incredible assignments and an editor’s dream to work with — this September she’ll tell you how she does it … and hand over the keys to getting unbelievable perks.
"Steenie has a great sense of humor and her presentations included lots of real life examples. Her frankness is refreshing."
— Anne M.
"Steenie has an awesome personality, honest about experience, a character! I just love her! We didn’t get bored by any means!"
— Laura A.
Kyle Wagner is a freelance writer, former food critic and former long-time Travel Editor at the Denver Post. Kyle dished out her opinions on dining in Denver for 12 years before she moved to the Post. Her love of food found her traveling the world in search of the best meals, which served her well when the previous travel editor retired from the Post and Kyle got the job. In Denver, she’ll share her invaluable insider knowledge of what makes travel editors tick, how to write an attractive query, how to break into newspaper travel sections, and how to add a food element -- ever more indispensable these days -- into your travel stories, making them irresistible to editors.
“Kyle’s talent for being direct and informative while also being funny is her biggest strength. It would be hard to find a more knowledgeable or experienced editor.”
— Alicia Dietrich
“Kyle gave an informed, no nonsense assessment of what an editor requires and also what is unacceptable. I feel this will help me a great deal in my initial queries.”
— Peggy Ann Connolly
“Strength: humor and candor. This professional editor provides clear guidelines on the do’s and don’ts of submitting your work while eliciting giggles and belly laughs from her audience the entire time.”
—— David Elliott
Efrain Padro will be our photography expert in Denver. Efrain is a full-time professional photographer specializing in nature and travel subjects. Efrain has photographed in such diverse locations as Argentina, Chile, Morocco, Mexico’s Baja California Sur, Holland, and Puerto Rico. His work has appeared in Outdoor Photographer, Frommer’s Budget Travel, Geographic Expeditions catalogs and other publications, and he is the author of The Photographer’s Guide to New Mexico.
This September, Efrain will provide you with the easy techniques you need to transform your vacation snaps into photos you can sell with your stories. This is a great way to sell more articles and land more by-lines … but also to up your income. In fact, send the right photos with your story, and that can easily double what you make on it.
“Efrain was wonderful – so easygoing and helpful. He spent so much time helping everyone one-on-one. He also has a great teaching style – He’s super humorous. I loved him!”
“Efrain is very knowledgeable, approachable, very involved with students and willing to share his secrets – He gave the best tips of the trade.”
“Efrain Padro was a 10! He is a very dynamic speaker and brought great new knowledge and ideas on getting published.” –
Now, it's early still, and this workshop is some months away. But we're already busy sending out speaker invitations to editors at a host of publications. These are people who hire writers just like you and who are always in the market for stories they can pay for to fill up their pages.
In September, these "guest editors" will talk to you about their own particular niches and how to guarantee you can break in with ease. For instance, you'll hear about food writing — how to write about restaurants, what to make sure you include in your reviews, tricks for evaluating cafés, bars, and restaurants, and more …
And we'll be hosting personalized reviews with these editors, sessions where you can throw out article ideas and they'll respond to them — tell you why one will work and another won't — and I guarantee, you'll learn more valuable lessons here than you can imagine.
There's just nothing quite like hearing what makes a "printable" article right from the expert who could print it.
Plus, we're inviting a wide variety of freelance writers who will share with you the lessons they've learned over the years and the secrets they know to apply every time they sit down to write.
This is the kind of stuff it would take you years to figure out on your own. But our speakers will spare you the trouble, frustration, and time … and just cut to the chase.
That way you're sure to be using your time and energies wisely. There's no more efficient — or fun — way to learn this stuff and guarantee you're up-and-running, enjoying the perks of a writer's life fast.
After joining us at one of our workshops in Argentina, Sandra K. sold an article about Buenos Aires apartments within just a month of her return home.
And another participant from our last workshop in San Diego successfully sold the same article she wrote during our program three times — and got paid for it three times, too.Click Here to Register Today!
The World’s Best Locations – on THEIR Tab – and
They'll Pay You to Write About it!
Join us, and we’ll guide you step-by-step. You’ll walk away with one … possibly even two … articles ready for publication.
You’ll have some of the leading experts in the field guiding your way, sharing their tips and secrets. And as I mentioned before, Denver always has something going on, so there’s plenty to write about.
You know, there are other "writing workshops" out there. But I want to be clear — this program is different than anything else you'll find. It's not the kind of thing where you just hear from some writers who share their stories to inspire you.
We do that, too, mind you. I mean, I guarantee you'll come away invigorated and ready to really jump into travel writing. But we take things a few steps further. We hand you a roadmap you can follow to really make it happen.
Our experts will actually give you a success plan you can work through — day-by-day — so you can have an article to an editor within two weeks of going home. We're all about action.
We'll introduce you to a system that, when coupled with a bit of persistence, is so powerful, our past workshop attendees are getting their work published like there’s no tomorrow.
The information you'll gain at this workshop could, quite literally, change your life — it has already for so many of our past attendees who, today, are working travel writers.
Here’s what our workshop architect, Jennifer Stevens, has to say about the program:
“The idea is that for these three days, you immediately apply what you learn. In my view, it's not really useful to just sit back and scribble notes on a pad of paper. Yet that's what you typically do in seminars.
“What IS useful, on the other hand, is to roll up your sleeves, lean forward, and really put what the speakers are showing you into practice. And that's what we do. And we don't leave you hunched over, staring at a blank piece of paper and struggling with what to say or how to say it …
“… we provide step-by-step instruction on exactly what you need to do to put an article together. Follow these formulas, and you’ll always know what to put first and what to write next.”
"And then, of course, we show you what to do after that, how — and where — to sell this article you've just written.”

and architect of The Ultimate Travel Writer's Workshop
Plus, what’s great is that this program comes with an affordable price tag. You might reasonably expect this workshop to cost two or three thousand dollars. After all, you're getting extraordinary access to industry experts and guidance from professional writers who will share with you the insights and secrets they've learned on-the-job. And it would be worth every penny. You'd recoup it quickly enough, after all.
But it won't cost you anywhere near that.

Only a handful of seats remain, however, and this is the only travel writing workshop like this we'll be hosting in 2015. So I strongly urge you to reserve your place now, while you can be guaranteed a seat, and take advantage of my offer to pay $200 towards your seat.
This is the deepest discount we’ll offer from now on.
This workshop is going to be bigger and better than ever before — with a broader scope, more speakers, more sessions, and more on-the-ground insights.
I encourage you to act quickly — while seats are open and generously discounted.Sincerely,

Take Diana R. She said, “My favorite luxury travel and spa writing perk was when my husband and I spent a week floating French canals on a 12-passenger barge -- entirely free of charge.”
Stan S. says one of this top three all-time favorite travel writing perks include “my pampered cruise through Patagonia around Cape Horn, the southernmost land mass in the world, with excursions that included walking amid thousands of penguins and sipping cocktails from atop a glacier.” A runner up included “a cruise through Alaska's Inside Passage.”
Mark’s two-page feature article won him “a week-long sailing trip for two in Croatia!”
Roy S. said, “One of my most enjoyable travel and wine stories, ever, was about the wine cruise I took on a historic 126-foot schooner in the San Juan Islands. Sailing through the deep blue Salish Seas visiting small, picturesque wineries by day, and wine tasting on the deck in the evenings in warm sunshine. Bliss!”Yes, Sign Me Up Now!
