Students and nonprofessional writers can apply for a scholarship.
World Nomads is accepting applications for its travel writing scholarships. Three aspiring writers will win a 10-day travel writing trip across Europe.
First, the 3 scholarship recipients will be flown from their countries of residence to Berlin where they will spend 2 days at our very first World Nomads Travel Writing workshop. Under the mentorship of veteran Lonely Planet author and industry mentor, Alex Leviton, you will learn how to find a great story, create solid pitches, improve your writing skills and gain a better understanding of the travel writing industry.
After the workshop, each writer will be off solo on their own customised 10-day European itinerary. As part of the application, you need to tell us about the two places you would most like to write about in Europe. We'll take these places of interest, throw in a few summer festivals and some local friends - and send you off on planes, trains and automobiles across Europe.
During your road trip, you will be tasked with writing about the people you meet, your adventures (and mis-adventures), and your local off-the-beaten-path encounters.
The deadline to apply is May 15. Winners will be announced on June 6.
