Book Passage Travel Writers & Photographers Conference
Every August I speak at “the Bay Area’s liveliest bookstore” on topics such as book publishing, personal travel writing, short- and long-form memoir, and the rapidly changing publishing landscape.
Several times a year I present Travelers’ Tales books at bookstore events around the San Francisco Bay Area. Sometimes I’m on my own, sometimes I emcee events with story contributors, but always we have a good time.
Nieman Conference on Narrative Journalism
For two consecutive years I spoke on various topics at the Nieman Conference on Narrative Journalism in Boston, produced by the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard. I held a “Master Class for Writers” at the beginning of the conference, participated in a panel discussion on editing titled “Behind the ‘Blue Pencil’: Editors talk about the long form” with Vanessa Mobley, Jon Marcus, and Peter Davis, and taught in the “Craft Round Robin: Small group sessions led by writers and editors” helping participants craft their work.
I’ve also spoken at a wide variety of travel shows, book fairs, writers conferences, and private clubs on the topics of travel writing and publishing.
