For travel-writers looking to make it in the digital age, Travel Writing 2.0 is a must-have. So much has changed in the last few decades that professional travelers need to think just as much about their brand as they do about discovering new destinations. Author Tim Leffel offers an accompanying blog to assist writers in the industry with up-to-date resources and practical tips for everything from producing to publishing.
Tim consulted a multitude of writers for advice and teachable moments. Within the resource, you’ll find Gary Ardnt, award-winning photographer and owner of EverythingEverywhere, Deb and Dave of PlanetD, as well as our very own Lisa Niver. Lisa is an award-winning travel expert, author and on-camera host as you’ll see in her new Sizzle Reel!
What do Tim Leffel and the writers in his book all have in common? They want to see other travel writers succeed. As quoted in the book’s dedication: “To the next batch of brilliant travel writers, creative bloggers and inventive entrepreneurs with something original to say.” After years in the industry, Tim is now a veteran travel writer and author who has penned articles in five continents, as well as the owner of Al Centro media and avid reviewer of travel gear; practically a one-stop-shop for your travel needs.
WSGT will be sitting down (virtually) with Tim Leffel in the coming weeks to have a more in-depth discussion about his new book and the world of travel-writing. Watch our blog for more information!
