Storytellers Wanted: Writing Course in Paradise
Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica is hosting two Immersion Travel Writing Retreats. Aspiring travel writers can attend workshops offered August 30–September 3 or November 7-10, 2013. Often times, food and travel go hand and hand. For many of us a culture’s food is a glimpse into a way of life.
Four Seasons is embarking on two travel writing courses that take place at their resort in Costa Rica. Taught by top travel writers whose works have appeared in publications and media outlets including the New York Times, National Geographic Traveler and on the Travel Channel, the course promises to be a learning adventure.
What else can you expect? Along with participating in informative writing sessions and classes, attendees will take part in half-day adventures near the hotel, interview key local experts and personalities and enjoy unique culinary “assignments” including the Costa Rican chocolate class and organic garden Chef’s table at Caracol restaurant.
The course + travel doesn’t come cheap. The course is $500 and hotel room rates start at $319 per night. However, the opportunity to be instructed under the tutelage of these seasoned travel writers is a rare experience hard to pass up. For more information about the class visit the Four Seasons site.
