Here's the full scoop from Viscape:

Viscape University’s next big (and free!) event on March 2, 2009 at 7:30 PM EST and will bring together some of the top travel writers and bloggers to talk about their trials, tribulations, and successes in the travel writing and blogging industry!

Travel Writing: Penning Your Way to a Career (or, at least, a very adventurous new hobby!)

Don’t miss this must attend event for aspiring travel writers because it is going to be the largest and most informative virtual meet-up of travel writers ever!

Our expert panel of travel writers will cover topics like:

* How to Get Started – blogging and print

* Motivation: How to Get it and More Importantly, How to Keep it!

* The Ethics of the Pen (Yeah, that’s a Big One!)

* Make Yourself Stand Out in the Crowd (Tips, Tricks, and PR)

Expert panelists include:

*Debbie Dubrow, creator of Delicious Baby, has two kids of her own and one goal: making traveling fun for the whole family.

*Claire Walter, award winning author, may live in Colorado, but she's been jet-setting around the world for years and sharing her insights on her blog,
Travel Babel, since 2006.

*Shannon Lake (aka Cajun Mama), writer for Traveling Mamas, hails from Southern Louisiana.
She seems to have tried it all as a musician, freelance writer, and seemingly full-time traveler.

*Shawn Bradford of Olga, the Traveling Bra helps you keep abreast of Olga's latest adventures. After a mini-midlife crisis, Olga grabbed her good friend Shawn, and they have been globetrotting and taking wild pictures ever since.

*Beth Blair (aka Desert Mama), another Traveling Mama, has worked as a flight attendant, trading in her winged label for travel writing, but now -- she only flies for pleasure!

Get your questions answered live and in person (well, virtually) by someone who’s literally been there and done that!

Please send your RSVP to so we can save you a seat! Space is limited and registration is on a first-come, first serve basis.
