Workshop by Isabella Morris: A ticket to the world
Who doesn’t dream of travelling the world for free? Travel writing is one way of doing it. In this hands-on workshop, writers will learn the basic skills needed to become a travel writer and how to break in to the industry without experience.
Isabella Morris – writer, ghostwriter, editor, teacher – is the author of two full-length books, a book of short stories, and Kuperard’s 2018 Culture Smart! South Africa. Her stories and articles have appeared in numerous publications, locally and internationally, and she’s been nominated for the Pushcart prize.
Isabella earned her MA in Writing from Wits University and is the owner of The Write Place, which offers editing and writing instruction locally and internationally. She has won numerous awards for her writing, but is still thrilled to have received an honourable mention from JM Coetzee for her 2009 short story Bluette.
“I enjoy teaching writing because as a writer myself, I know how difficult it is to find a way into a story, and so it is always such a joy to show writers different ways of approaching and framing their stories.” When not teaching, Isabella is writing her own stories and editing other writers. She enjoys reading Arabic fiction in translation.
