Monthly Meeting | Journey Into Travel Writing

  • 09 Nov 2021
  • 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
  • Gratz Center, Room 4F, 126 E. Chestnut St., Chicago


Registration is closed
We're reuniting and it feels so good! What better way to kick off our first post-pandemic in-person meeting than with a program about a career avenue that can get you out of the house!

Many writers dream of embarking on travel writing careers, but their journeys somehow get derailed before they begin. Come join us in November, when experienced, peripatetic travel writers Pamela Dittmer McKuen, IWOC members Cindy Bertram and Kathryn Occhipinti exchange stories, discuss how to gain travel writing gigs and share thoughts on whether today's writers really can punch tickets for fun and steady income within this coveted field.

Buckle up and enjoy the ride!

Networking, with snacks and beverages begins at 5:00 p.m., followed by the program at 6:00 p.m. 

(Until then, check out Cindy's fascinating How Six Women Executives Steer the Cruise Industry Today; Kathryn's engaging books on Conversational Italian and French, Pamela's exquisite travel blog, All the Write Places.)


Admission is FREE  for IWOC Members. Non-members pay $10 with online preregistration/payment or $15 at the door. 

Meeting Membership Sign-up Discount
