This unit is designed to provide students with opportunities to hone their skills as storytellers with a focus on travel narrative, and to foster an understanding and appreciation of the theoretical issues associated with travel and travel writing. As this unit recognises that a writer can draw on local as well as foreign places to construct a sound travel narrative, it is offered to students regardless of how much they have travelled.
