Who doesn’t want to eat and drink their way through Europe and get paid for it?!
As a sommelier and freelance writer who has worked in the wine industry for nearly 10 years, I developed a lot of wine contacts around the world. After college I decided to put my two skills to the test and spend a year living eating/drinking my way around Europe as a writer.
People always ask me how I was able to live in Italy, tour the best wineries and restaurants, and get paid for it! Trying to answer this question in a 10 min video proved to be difficult – I was only scratching the surface of the details that come along with the “how-tos” of travel writing.
In order to effectively help all you aspiring travel/wine writers get your foot in the door (and avoid all the mistakes I made along the way), I’ve developed a two week crash course on how to live in Europe, tour the wineries and restaurants, and get paid doing it!
This is a dynamic, face paced, class where you will receive in-depth info and stellar insider tips on:
*How to obtain a press release to major wine events (like Vino 100).
*How to acquire freelance writing gigs with newspapers and magazines.
*How to write a compelling query letter.
*How to sell your story, properly invoice, and tips on scheduling writing gigs to manage cash-flow.
*Wine 101 basics (how to read wine labels in Europe, basic tasting tips and techniques, and an overview of all major grape varietals/wineries in Western Europe).
*Travel writing basics (top 10 mistakes to avoid, how to be current, edgy, and develop a niche for yourself).
*And many more travel writing details!
*As a special bonus, I will give my personal European wine contact list to the first 5 people who register!
This is a crash course on all things to know about travel writing with a wine emphasis, and I am confident you will leave the class feeling ready to conquer the world of wine and traveling!
All for only $33!
Space is limited. I’ve had a lot of requests for this class but have to cap it at 40 people to make sure everyone gets enough of my time/attention. Register early to ensure a seat. This may be the only time I offer this!
Dates May 13th – May 26th
The entirety of the class will be held in a private Facebook forum. I will post daily info/videos/wine quizzes, etc., as well as be available to answer any questions you may have.
