Viva Travel Guide Books is holding a couple of week-long guidebook/travel writing crash courses over the next few months. They’re looking to train a select group of writers to be travel-writers; if you get chosen to part of the training, your internship will be to get out there and write a section of one of their guidebooks, i.e. getting published!
Quito, Ecuador: November 19th through 23rd, 2007.
Cost: The registration fee is a meager $25 (it’s their first camp); if you get selected and land-up writing something for their guidebook, some sort of per diem for you is in plan.
Buenos Aires, Argentina: January 6th through 12th, 2008.
Viva Travel Guide Books is new guidebook company focused primarily on Latin America, that offers all of their content for free online.
