This four-day seminar has opened the gates to aspiring and working travel writers and photographers for three decades. Shapiro attended the first conference in 1992 and went on to write for the San Francisco Chronicle, Washington Post and National Geographic. Beyond being a great learning environment, with morning classes, afternoon panel discussions and plenty of time to connect directly with fellow writers and editors, it’s a hell of a good time. The conference culminates with one of the most out-of-tune yet exuberant karaoke nights you can dare to imagine.  Helmed by the inimitable Don George — who dispenses Yoda-esque wisdom, especially in the gospel of his concluding remarks — it’s an uplifting weekend that will be one of the highlights of your year.
