I spent the month of the environmental and travel journalism program last August 2017. The program was everything that I expected and so much more. We only had two students on the program and one instructor (Fiona), thus has loads of personal attention from Fi who is an established environmental journalist and underwater photographer. The program involves a lot of research, writing and drinking coffee but at the end of it I managed to publish 1 article in a print magazine (South Magazine), two blogs (Africa Geographic), and am still working on a few additional stories that I want to publish. We did do awesome trips to research stories, collect accompanying photographs and interview experts. Overall this is a fantastic program that gives you lots of insight into building a career as a travel or environmental writer.
