Travel

Travel narrative is a nonfiction category that records the memories of a writer’s travels in a particular region or country.

Travel books are more than a mere collection of factual data about the journey; they usually have a narrative arc and present the writer’s unique point of view of the travel experience. Travel books could simultaneously be descriptive and evocative, literary and entertaining.

A flavor of travel writing is the travel journal category, of which Che Guevara's The Motorcycle Diaries is a notable example.

Outdoor literature, about a traveler's experience of outdoor spaces, falls into this category.

If you write nonfiction stories about travel, explore this subgenre to connect with other like-minded writers, workshop, and publish your book.
