MatadorU & World Expeditions Offer Travel Writing Course at Everest Base Camp

by Julie Schwietert May 26, 2010
If you have a bucket list for travel, I’m willing to bet Mt. Everest and the Inca Trail might just be two entries on it.

Am I right?

If so, then it’s worth reading on.

MatadorU is partnering with World Expeditions, a global adventure travel company, to take our course offerings on the road… or, more accurately, on the trail.

Later this year, a 23-day trek led by World Expeditions’ qualified mountaineers will head up to the Everest base camp, accompanied by Matador’s Robin Esrock, a travel writer/blogger and creator and co-host of “Word Travels,” a 40-part adventure series, seen on OLN/CityTV in Canada, and on National Geographic International.

Robin will be leading a travel writing course focused on pitching and gaining greater exposure for your writing.

Participants will be invited to blog about their Everest experiences during and after the trip, and the best blogger will be awarded a free Inca Trail trek from World Expeditions.

The cost of the trip is approximately $3,654 USD, and includes all accommodation, meals, guides, and a round-trip flight from Los Angeles.
