Ponte Vedra Writers meeting to focus on travel writing


Like most people, Kathleen Walls loves to travel, but instead of paying for costly cruises and exotic vacations, she’s learned how to make it pay. The publisher and writer will present the workshop, “Travel Tips in Today’s World” at the FWA Ponte Vedra Writers meeting on Saturday, March 23 at 10:30 a.m. at the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library.

During her presentation, Walls will discuss the need for social media usage, how to get press trips and how technology has changed everything in travel writing. She’ll also answer any questions.

Kathleen Walls is publisher and writer for American Roads and Global Highways (www.americanroads.net), the Ezine for anyone who travels. Her travel books include “Georgia’s Ghostly Getaways,” “Finding Florida’s Phantoms,” “Hosts With Ghosts: Haunted Historic Hotels in the Southeast” and the “Wild About Florida” series, as well as several online tour guides. Her fiction books include the “War in the West” series, “Under a Bloody Flag” and “Under a Black Flag,” “Kudzu” and “Last Step,” which has been made into a movie by Forbes Productions.

The Ponte Vedra Writers group is part of the Florida Writers Association, a statewide, nonprofit organization with nearly 1,500 members dedicated to the support of both aspiring and published writers in any genre. The March 23 meeting is free and open to FWA members and non-members alike. For information on FWA, visit www.floridawriters.net.
