“At every point, writing deepens our exploration of unknown terrain, new cultures and languages, and connections with people.” Writing Abroad explores the ways in which journeys and travel experiences can be a rich and compelling source of insights about people and cultures both familiar and unknown. Chapters such as “Encountering Another Language in Your Own Voice,” “Portraits and Profiles,” and “Travel Writing in the Age of the Internet” demonstrate the power of using memories, observations, and engagement with other cultures for storytelling, and each section is filled with inspiring writing, revision, and fieldwork exercises.
