WTNG 270 - Travel Writing


Prerequisites: Successful completion (C- or higher) of WTNG 102  
Requirement Fulfillment: Minor, Core Concentration
This course familiarizes students with the rhetorical issues of purpose, genre, and audience unique to the field of travel writing.  Students will adopt the curious, open-minded, and adventurous ethos of a travel writer as they write to inform, persuade, and reflect.  They will learn to incorporate key features common to travel writing, such as first-person narration; the quest-as-frame; and cultural, historical, literary, art and architectural references.  They will also learn to uphold the expectations for effective communication travel writers share, including authentic and accurate descriptions; unbiased representation of people and place; and precise, evocative word choice.
