BPconfThere’s still time to sign up for the Book Passage Travel Writers & Photographers Conference, which runs from August 8th to 11th, 2013, in Corte Madera, California.

I (Laurie McAndish King) attended this conference ten years ago, and it kickstarted my travel writing career by giving me the information, inspiration, and contacts I needed to become a successful travel writer and photographer.

Now in its 22nd year, the conference has an extraordinary, international reputation among publishers, editors, and writers. This four-day extravaganza offers an array of writing and photography workshops in the morning, a full afternoon of panels and discussions, and evening faculty presentations. There are optional, working field trips to explore the resources of the Bay Area. The faculty includes publishers, magazine editors, photographers, travel essayists, food writers, restauranteurs, guidebook writers, and more. There are hours of informal interaction between faculty and participants during lunch and in discussions that often last late into the evening.
