AUA Special Google Hangout - Pink Pangea Travel Writing Workshop
Join us Thursday, March 6 at 12pm EST for this Special Information Session
Ever wondered what makes a great travel writer? Curious about the AUA Summer Service Internship program?
In a special Google Hangout with Pink Pangea Editor, Rachel Sales we'll read compelling pieces by prolific travel writers and learn how to make our own experiences come to life on paper. We'll also discuss how to relay our insights while maintaining cultural sensitivities; how to use voice and tone to effectively convey experiences; and how to exercise objectivity and subjectivity with finesse. Here are samples of some of the writings we'll be reviewing.
There are limited spaces available for this AUA event. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org before 5 pm on March 4 to receive instructions on how to access the webinar.
Pink Pangea is an online magazine and forum founded by two women passionate about writing and travel, who took notice of the limited resources out there specifically for female travelers. Their goal has been to create an online community for women who travel or who want to travel, with honest support, advice, and insight from other women. Visitors to Pink Pangea's website can search by destination, topic, or nature of travel (study abroad, volunteer, vacation, etc.) to find information written by fellow women travelers who have been there and done that before. You can also share your own travel stories to be a resource for others. The site is a fantastic and unique resource, one that some of our Unofficial Ambassadors have contributed to during their service abroad. You can read contributions by AUA alums, Emma and Katerina, below:
The America's Unofficial Ambassadors Summer Service Internship Program places volunteers with schools or grassroots in NGOs in Indonesia, Morocco, Tajikistan or Tanzania.
Unofficial Ambassadors build relations between America and the Muslim World by interning full-time with a school or grassroots organization in the Muslim World for 6 weeks. In the process, volunteers gain hands-on professional experience, learn local languages, and can earn academic credit from their university.
