Course Description:

In this course, students explore the fundamentals of travel writing. Through critical reading and extensive writing, students discover how to craft pieces that evoke a sense of time, place and personal journey. Students also focus on developing points of view and description, and draw upon personal experience and research to build skills in the full range of travel writing including blogs, memoirs, essays and guidebooks.

Essential Objectives:

1. Identify and analyze elements of good travel writing through reading the works of notable travel writers.
2. Accurately and skillfully record observations and reflect critically upon them.
3. Discuss and demonstrate features of travel writing, such as voice, imagery, time structure, and evocation of place and culture.
4. Develop a process for getting started, developing, and structuring drafts of his/her own travel writing, as well as revising toward a final product.
5. Analyze personal strengths and weaknesses in writing, as well as critique one another's work constructively.
6. Create and submit a final portfolio of selected work that demonstrates a commitment to the writing process and competence in the craft of travel writing.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
