BOOK IT ! Turn Your Holiday Travel Tales into Words and Pictures

Janet Fullwood
former sacramento bee travel editor and travel photographer
           Maybe you're planning yet another trip to Grandma's house for Thanksgiving—or maybe you're over-the-top excited about a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Palau. "Book It" is all about how to combine your written impressions with photos to create a great story to pitch to a publication or record for the family archives.
          Join Janet for an interactive session on travel writing and photography. She'll show you how to find a focus, create a sense of place, frame a vignette, set up a shot list, sharpen your observation skills and use verbal imagery to put the reader behind your eyes and in your shoes. Janet's "show, don't tell" tips will add depth to your writing and help solidify your story.
