Low writer/editor ratio:
With often a better than three to one writer/editor ratio, Travel Classics affords attendees and speakers numerous opportunities for meaningful exchanges, off site and on.
Editor presentations and panel discussions:
Writers stay up-to-date with the ever-changing magazine playing field and find out the latest on magazine guidelines and coverage.
Scheduled meetings with four or more editors:
During these fifteen minute consultations, writers get immediate feedback, as they pitch story ideas and get to know the editors one-on-one.
Writer bios and clips sent to editors before conference:
So that editors might better know the writers, Travel Classics sends two attendee clips to each editor one month before the conference.
Off-site dinners and after hours networking:
The networking continues in a more relaxed setting at celebrated off-site restaurants, with all conference participants attending.
Writers contest judged by conference editors:
Serious writers have the opportunity to show editors their best work in manuscript form. A prize is given to the winner. Editors sometimes buy the manuscripts they judge.
Pre- and post-conference trips
Complimentary trips are organized by conference sponsors to facilitate research for writers interested in entering the contest and learning more about the host area.
Work showcased in TravelClassics.com:
