Travel writing in Antigua: Lonely Planet, NY Times, and Publishing your Work

Hey everybody,

A quick update on plans for the travel writing course in Antigua in May:

I just heard back from Lonely Planet.com, which is going to work with us to update their Antigua travel guide, and we'll be meeting in an online chat with Jill Agostino, travel editor for the New York Times, before we go.

We'll be writing and photographing both places and people while we're on the island. When we return to IC, we'll produce a magazine of our work, which we'll publish for distribution to the schools, libraries and government offices of Antigua.

Cool, huh?

About a dozen of you have expressed interest in participating, but most of you are worried about the costs (can't blame you; it is expensive...).

We've scheduled a meeting this week to talk about the program and the possibilities. If you're at ALL interested, please join us:

WHERE: Park 279
WHEN: Thursday, 5:50 to 7 p.m.

Thanks!

Dianne

Dianne,
I've always wanted to be a travel writer! This course sounds intensely interesting and fun...but i have a few reservations:
1) I am graduating in May. Can I still participate?
2) If i can, it looks as though the first day is actually graduation day. Will you be at graduation? Is there any way I can arrive a day later than everyone else?
