Here is what Amy Piper, of Follow The Piper, had to say about her experience at the 2019 Midwest Travel Network’s Writer’s Workshop.

“The Midwest Travel Network Writer’s Workshop guides you from the initial travel experience (press trip style) through to writing and editing the article. The focus of this workshop is writing for your readers. I learned how to create tension in my articles to move the reader through the experience. It’s a small group, and you’ll not only learn from an award-winning author but also other writers in the workshop.”
