The 18th annual Book Passage Travel Writers and Photographers Conference runs from Thursday, August 13 through Sunday the 16th, 2009

“The conference has an extraordinary reputation among publishers, editors, and writers. Alumni have published books, articles, and photos—many as the direct result of lessons learned and contacts made at the conference. There is no finer travel writing conference anywhere in the world.

‘The Conference offers an array of workshops, panels, and evening activities. There are many hours of informal interaction between faculty and students during lunch and in discussions that often last late into the evening. The Conference Chair is Donald George, pioneering travel writer and editor: San Francisco Chronicle, and Lonely Planet. The Photography Chair is Robert Holmes, award-winning travel photographer.”

Even if you haven’t signed up to participate, you can still stop by during the evening to hear Tim Cahill (Thursday at 8 p.m.) or Phil Cousineau (Friday at 8 p.m.).
