Southampton art school travel writing course

Spending a weekend in Southampton, Ontario with my friend Cheryl anytime is worth the drive from Toronto – however this weekend had an added bonus as we both participated in a course for aspiring travel writers at the Southampton Art school. Situated on the shores of Lake Huron, Ontario the Art school embodies the wonderful collective spirit of sharing talent that the artistic community often represents. Our group leader – professional travel writer Melody Wren – was a perfect example of this as she generously shared her wealth of experiences over the two mornings we spent in class. An eclectic group of six participants with varied backgrounds, we encouraged each other to find our own voices. Will Cheryl and I move beyond our blogs and try ‘pitching’ story ideas? The ongoing travel is a sure thing but stay tuned for anything further than that.
