The good bloggers over at Frommers would like to remind all of us aspiring travel writer types about the upcoming Key West Travel Writing Workshop.

There’s still time to sign up for the workshop, which actually takes place twice: first, from January 30 to February 1, and again from February 6 to 8. The cost is $275.

Sounds like a good excuse to head south, right?

I’m a big fan of writing classes and workshops: I don’t believe that writing can be “taught”, exactly, but I do think that for some writers, a little bit of structure and motivation — not to mention new perspectives from both instructors and classmates — can go a long way.

A year or so ago, I wrote about my experience at the Book Passage Travel Writers and Photographers Conference for Brave New Traveler: check out 9 Things I Learned About Travel Writing at Book Passage.
