Try your hand at travel writing

Travel is something we can all do. We don’t have to travel great distances. A journey can be as close as the distance from our home to the park at the end of the road. Travel writing is one of the most compelling forms of writing because a good travel book can transport you immediately to different places, people, and cultures, all from the comfort of your own home.

What happens to you when you read?

Ever wondered about the psychology of literature or stories? Or how a certain narrative might change our attitude or perspective? This free course, What happens to you when you read? explores our relationship with books and the ways in which engaging with fiction in particular can change readers.  Research shows that as well as providing us with a form of entertainment, the activity of reading can bring benefits to our wellbeing in challenging times. People have experienced and explored these benefits throughout history. A good story can entertain us, develop our creativity and imagination, and transport us to different fictional worlds, but it can change us psychologically as well. Transcript As you work your way through this course, you will have the chance to participate in both reading and writing activities and experience for yourself what happens to you when you read.
