This session with Marcello Di Cintio walks you through the artform—why it matters and what makes it sing. In a world where every place has been discovered, what is the point of travel writing? In this workshop with a famously thoughtful travel writer, we will discuss the changing role of narrative travel journalism in today’s hyper-connected world. When writers go off to seek stories in the great wide world, what are their goals and responsibilities, how do they portray the Other, and how far should they go to create compelling art?
