Travel writing tuition

Online courses, newsletters and 121 mentoring


Breaking into travel writing is my bespoke online course run in conjunction with I've created a programme of useful materials to introduce writers and non-writers to the world of travel writing, how it works and how to get started, and during the four-week course I offer weekly video Q&As for students to pick my brains. The course began in autumn 2020 and ran again in March 2021.


"The course content was detailed, well structured, and very accessible. They complemented the weekly calls very well, and I'm sure I'll be referring to them over the next few months!"


"Lottie's 'Breaking into travel writing course' is the perfect overview to the field of travel writing for anyone interested in starting their own freelance career. Informative and practical, her lessons lay out both the glamorous and not-so-glam sides to travel – from sending pitches to rejections, from landing press trips to what it's like when you're spending long days on the road and filing copy from your hotel bed." 

The next course begins on 15 November 2021 and costs £336 (£280+VAT). Sign up here.


I founded Talking Travel Writing in summer 2020 with my excellent colleague, Steph Dyson of The newsletter is a weekly digest on the travel writing industry, with everything from news about which publications are commissioning, launching or closing, as well as interviews with editors and established travel writers.
