Share your love of Philadelphia while experimenting with many different types of travel writing, from using sensory details to describe favorite Philadelphia memories to writing reviews of wacky tourist attractions that suddenly pop up in our lab. Midweek, we’ll break into small groups for a field trip to film segments for a travel documentary about the best free things to do in Philly!

Registration is free, but requires a refundable deposit of $25 via credit card, PayPal, check, or cash. The registration will not be valid until the deposit has been received by Spells Writing Lab.

Every year, thousands of visitors travel to the City of Brotherly Love for experiences found nowhere else: reliving history at Independence Hall; eating a cheesesteak in South Philly; running up the steps of the Art Museum like Rocky. But you are a real Philadelphian—what’s your can’t-miss list of things to do and see? What are your favorite Philly moments? Together, we’ll write and film a short travel documentary sharing the people, places, and experiences that make our hometown unique for tourists and residents alike. It’s your city: tell your story.

Registration is free, but requires a refundable deposit of $25 via credit card, PayPal, check, or cash. The registration will not be valid until the deposit has been received by Spells Writing Lab.

Join us this summer to try your hand at a variety of sports writing, from blogs and podcasts to sportscasting and feature stories. We’ll even take a field trip to the Camden Riversharks’ Campbell Field for a behind-the-scenes tour before attending a game. If you’re a good sports writer, you could…go…all…the…way!
