David Farley gets rave reviews for his travel writing classes. AND he’s fun. So that means, he makes learning a good time. He just let me know that he’s got two classes coming up in January and February. If you’ve got some extra holiday cash, or a Secret Santa that wants to support your dreams, take one of these and get on the travel writing track. Bylines, bylines, bylines.
