After the huge success of the 2021 online events, National Geographic Traveller (UK)’s The Masterclasses returns from 24 to 26 January 2022 with a series of online courses, bringing the popular travel writing and photography sessions into homes across the globe.


The six one-hour sessions, led by members of the National Geographic Traveller (UK) team and long-time contributors over the three days, will provide a series of practical discussions and expert advice that will shine a light on written and visual storytelling. Panels will feature the magazine’s senior editors and designers, as well as award-winning contributors and photographers.

Pat Riddell, editor of National Geographic Traveller (UK), said: “The amazing success of the online Masterclasses last March means that it makes perfect sense for them to return again in 2022. Having some of the biggest names in travel writing and photography revealing their top tips and advice will enable attendees to learn valuable, practical skills that should result in rapid improvement of their methods and techniques. And being easily accessible and affordably priced means anyone with a curious mind can attend.”

For the budding travel writer and avid photographer, this is an opportunity to gain invaluable inspiration and practical instruction from some of the industry’s leading experts.

Sessions are £10 each or £50 for all six, if booked together.


Appealing to budding writers hoping to break into the industry, as well as those of intermediate level, the three one-hour classes will cover everything from writing tips to getting published. Members of the National Geographic Traveller (UK) team and long-time contributors will lead each masterclass.

1. How to write an award-winning travel feature
From beginning to endings, quotes and structure, our panel will discuss how they put together their best features and how you can apply their tried-and-tested techniques to your own writing.

2. On assignment
Turning a trip into a feature is skill in its own right — in this session, our panel will guide you through what you need to do when you’re out in the field and give you pointers on how to get the best information and speak to the right people to make your story work.
