Get Fast, On-Demand Feedback on Your Travel Stories Plus Exclusive Masterclasses With Top Travel Journalists, Publishers and Editors
“I am endlessly grateful for my mentorship with Jennifer and Nathan of Intrepid Times, as it helped me sift through the noise and share my true written voice. I learned how to sprinkle in personal details while still appealing broadly to readers and I learned how to balance being both descriptive and direct. Writing about adventure is an adventure unto itself and I am thrilled to launch into the publication world!”
Your mind spins with travel stories, but how do you capture the full meaning of your experience in words? And once you’ve done that, how do you cut through the noise and get your work published, distributed, and read by an appreciative audience?
We’re here to help you make that happen. Founded in early 2020, the Intrepid Times Private Writer’s Club is where you get the support and guidance you need to bring your travel stories to the world.
With a huge archive of writing masterclasses at your fingertips the moment you join, as well as direct access to the Intrepid Times editors, this is the ultimate resource to help you find your voice and achieve your unique writing goals.
Working closely with Intrepid Times editors, you’ll learn how to transform your travels – past, present and future – into compelling stories that editors will be falling over themselves to publish.
Open to new members only for limited periods each year, the Intrepid Times Private Writer’s Club uses a dual-pronged approach to help you make rapid, noticeable improvements to your confidence, creativity and publishing success:
Membership Benefit 1: Get On-Demand Feedback on Your Travel Writing from Intrepid Times Editors
“The feedback provided by Nathan and the team was incredibly quick and valuable. Nathan explained how to describe a scene rather than merely stating how it made me feel. While remaining positive at all times, he showed me where I was wasting words and how to reallocate them towards writing a story that truly transports the reader. Most importantly, I learned how to take a real-life journey, strip it down, and then rebuild it as a compelling story.“
Send us your writing, and we’ll work closely with you to help you take it to the next level.
Some members use this to trial pieces for publication on Intrepid Times or other publications. Others use it to help them get out of ruts and bring ideas that they have long been working on into fruition.
Imagine having professional editors “on call” whenever you have a draft or an idea you are looking to improve!
Here’s how it works: Once you register you’ll be given a private code. Use this in the subject line of your email, and every story you send to our editors will immediately be moved to the top of the queue. Within a few quick days, you’ll receive a detailed reply going line by line over your story. We’ll help you build on your strengths, and correct any areas that may have been holding you back.
When you read an article you have sent in with our suggested edits and comments, you’ll know what it is like to see your writing from the eyes of a professional editor. But don’t worry: We aren’t your high school English teacher! We’re not there to look out for “mistakes” and make you feel bad – far from it. Our job is to help you discover your voice and find the unique magic in your writing, and to fan the flame so you can grow exponentially in both skill and confidence.
Here’s what one recent member said:
I’m glad to have become a PWC [Private Writer’s Club] member! Thank you so much for all your work and time editing my article. This is the first time I had an editor review one of my stories and “I’m over the moon!” (Cliche? Smile) Seriously, I’m thankful for all your comments; analyzing them, I can see how much they improve my story.
I can’t wait till next month.
Membership Benefit 2: Hone Your Skills With Monthly Travel Writing Masterclasses
“The most crucial thing I’m carrying forward from this process is about creating as much value and meaning as possible for the reader. It’s so easy to fall into a diary-style trap when telling travel stories, especially as the essence of them is often rooted in the writer’s personal experiences. This is something I was struggling with; leaving too many breadcrumbs and not enough space for interpretation. But working with the editors at Intrepid Times has allowed me to start moving past that! I feel I can now convey my passion and honesty as an author much better, whilst feeling more connected with my audience.”
Every month, you get access to a new masterclass focusing on a different area of the travel writing craft. You’ll learn how to tell a powerful story, pitch your work to editors, and write travel stories that people will LOVE reading.
Some lessons feature special guests, including established journalists, publishers, and world-renowned travel writers. Techniques are covered, as well as insights into mindset, staying motivated, plus the business side of writing and publishing.
Discover Over 15 Hours of Audio Training in the Masterclass Archives
The moment you join, you’ll get instant access to the full vault of travel writing masterclasses (over 15 hours of audio lessons!). Most lessons include an audio class of approximately one hour, accompanied by an easy-reference PDF workbook. The masterclasses are direct, practical and useful. Rich in real world examples, you’ll boost your confidence and get a clear sense of exactly what to do (and what not to do) as a travel writer.
