Hey y’all! I’m part of the Go Abroad writer’s academy, which means that I’m part of a group of travel writers who, for six months, publish two guides a month in exchange for feedback and online workshops about travel writing, pitches, SEO, etc.
I love being a part of blogging programs like this one because I learn so much from my assignments.
One of our assignments was to pretend that I’d just met the travel writing love of my life and that they’re interested in working with me. So, I came up with a 30-40 second pitch in order to convince them to join me on my travel writing escapades!
Assignments like this one help us hone in on exactly what it is our brands are (and aren’t) in a quick elevator speech.
I was also a part of Wanderful’s nine-month-long blogging cohort, during which I learned so much about the importance of having a consistent social media presence. I wrote monthly articles and also received feedback on each post, making me a better writer.
If you’re interested in branding yourself as a better travel writer, definitely look into joining an online academy/cohort!
