4. Writing Opportunities!
Here at the Travel Society we believe that great experiences should be shared so we would love for you to share your adventures or bring a taste of home to all of us. Submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Here we have a couple of ideas to get you started:
‘Home Sweet Home’ – A recurring feature where we’d like you to write a piece about your hometown and why it’s unique/why you would recommend it. What do you like? What is there to do? Places to eat/drink?
Recommended Blogs – We’d love to know if there are any travel-related bloggers or websites that inspire you and are worth following. Let us know who they are and why you recommend following them!
‘Letters from Abroad’ – Another recurring feature of ours focused on those of you that are studying/have studied abroad! We would love for you to write us a piece about where you have been, the pro’s/con’s of the place and whether or not you’d recommend it to others.
‘Visit UK’ Reviews – Finally, as our society is officially sponsored by ‘Visit UK’, we’d love a piece about your experiences on any of their trips.
Of course, please let us know if you have any other suggestions! Join our ‘Warwick Travel Soc Writers’ group on Facebook by using the link below to stay informed about what kind of pieces we’re looking for and ask any questions you may have.
5. Exec Elections!
With Warwick Travel being a brand new society, we’re sad that some of our exec are already ready to set off on their next adventure once they graduate from Warwick. Of course we’ll be looking for replacements so if you think you’d love to get involved in the running of the society, look out for details of exec elections that will be coming up soon!
That’s all from us for now so make sure you keep updated by liking us on Facebook and following our Instagram page (links below) and come along to our socials to meet like-minded students that also love to travel.
Have a great weekend and stay adventurous,
Your Warwick Travel Exec xx
