Travelling Outwards Travelling Inwards

Of what value is travel writing in a discovered world? In re-translating the world, in fact, in the personal journey and in the imaginative quest. Through workshops, tutorials and discussions, this course will explore the transformation of our ordinary encounters and epic journeys into articles, stories and books as we revisit old ground with new questions.

Rory MacLean is one of Britain’s most inventive and expressive travel writers. His ten books include UK best sellers Stalin’s Nose, Under the Dragon, and most recently, Berlin: Imagine a City, chosen as a Book of the Year by the Washington Post.

Jay Griffiths is the award winning author of non-fiction works Pip PipWild, and Kith. Her fiction includes Archipelago, and A Love Letter from a Stray Moon.

Katharine Norbury’s first book, The Fish Ladder, is a travelogue and memoir. It was published by Bloomsbury to high acclaim in 2015. @kjnorbury
