The Book Passage Travel Writers and Photographers Conference

Book Passage Bookstore & Cafe - Corte Madera , California
August 8 to 11, 2019

I'm returning for my 7th year as a faculty member of this venerated and vital four-day travel-writing conference, and I can't tell you how happy that makes me. It's an incredible privilege to teach alongside absolute legends, and it's also just a heck of a lot of fun and something I look forward to all year. This time around, I'm excited to announce that I'll be co-teaching a morning workshop with friend and colleague Marcia DeSanctis. I first met Marcia when I published a beautiful essay by her in the first volume I edited of The Best Women's Travel Writing, and I've published several more since then. Marcia is a freelance writer for Vogue, Town & Country, Travel & Leisure, Departures (and countless more publications), and she's the NYT-bestselling author of 100 Places in France Every Woman Should Go.

I hope we'll see you at the conference! More information is available here!
