My Travel Writing Class and Their Work: Feeling Like a Proud Momma



It’s hard to believe we have come to the end of another semester. My group of writers in our travel writing class published their stories today on our WordPress site called MORE THAN MARYLAND that I set up as a place to house of all of my All-Star Travelers who have taken the course at Stevenson University.

As the students made some of their final presentations in class, a lot was discussed, such as what they learned from taking a travel writing course, which pieces from renowned travel writers were their favorites, how this course has helped them see travel differently, and what they will take with them into the future having taken the course.

Travel writing is experiential. It’s a mix of telling us about a place and the writer’s own personal experience in the place. Travel writing is intimate; it’s an exploration; and it’s a time to discover and find things out about you and the world around you.

I love this class. For years, I’ve said that this course is a true culmination of all the things we learn in communication courses on campus, such as classes in writing, interpersonal communication, intercultural communication, small group communication, and journalism.

Those of you who are teachers can totally understand the pride I am feeling at this moment. So, without further adieu, let me share with you the link that will take you to the latest stories written by the students of Special Topic in Travel Writing at Stevenson University.

Very proud of the following students for their great pieces: Troy, Christine, Brian, Andrew, Arielle, Wornden, Olivia, Maya, and Quinn.

Keep traveling.
