Writing a travel memoir isn’t as simple as keeping a journal or diary about your most recent trip. While journaling or writing in a diary can be an important part of your writing journey when working on a travel memoir, the actual end product is much more sophisticated. A travel memoir can truly be a work of literary art, not to be confused with a guidebook or vacation review.
During our next Telephone Based Round Table Discussion, Alexis Grant, aka, The Traveling Writer and Elizabeth Evans, Literary Agent will join NAMW President, Linda Joy Myers to discuss and be available to answer your questions about writing a travel memoir.

Besides offering you a direct connection with experts–a benefit that will help you to develop your ideas and hone your skills as you write, edit, revise, and publish your memoir–you will have the opportunity to develop relationships within the NAMW memoir writing community. Please join us for these special events that are open to the public.
