Travel writing is a popular form of journalistic nonfiction, and in the age of Web 2.0 technologies, it is difficult to experience a place without first encountering travel writing in blogs, podcasts, or on social media. In this course, students will explore travel writing in multiple ways–through reading and analysis of contemporary and classic travel writing, learning and practicing travel writing techniques, researching the place and people of Iceland, traveling and journaling for two weeks in Iceland, and using written and oral communication to create and distribute their own travel writing about Iceland after they return.
