Nailing the Travel Feature (Webinar) With Natasha Mekhail

Travel writing has a rich history. Remember Su Shi’s Record of Stone Bell Mountain from the Song Dynasty? Travel writers have been trying to get it right ever since. This one-hour webinar is designed for journalists and writers looking to boost their travel writing skills and will explore what travel writing is (and isn’t) and why it matters.

The webinar cover:


  • How to get the angle
  • Crafting a compelling lead
  • Body structure and the thematic thread
  • How to pitch
  • Outlets and resources for travel journalists


Edmonton-born, Montreal-based Natasha Mekhail is the Editor-in-Chief of the Spafax Luxury Brands, a portfolio of travel and lifestyle publications that includes Fairmont Magazine, Bombardier Experience and the Canadian edition of Mercedes-Benz magazine. Prior to moving to Montreal, Natasha worked in Edmonton and Vancouver, and held editorial positions with Unlimited, Alberta Venture and Westworld Alberta.
