Attending the Tropical Writers’ Workshop was one of the best decisions I ever made. My boyfriend, Macrae, and I started a travel and lifestyle blog and while in Bangkok we were told about the Tropical Writer’s Workshop on Koh Tao. We weren’t too sure if we wanted to uproot our travel plans and take on the added costs but we had been looking for a way to develop our skills and further our knowledge and decided that it would be an investment in furthering our goals. When we wrapped up after the first day the two of us both felt like we had learned 2 weeks’ worth of valuable information in the one day! Between the writing skills, travel writing, social media and web design components the workshop provided us with a wealth of information. My writing has improved greatly and my confidence has been bolstered. We’ve been given the tools and resources to improve on our website design and enhance our social media following and engagement. In just a month, we’ve seen some amazing improvements in ourselves, in our site and following and in the work we’ve produced. We had truly incredibly instructors and were lucky to have an amazing group of fellow attendees. We left the workshop with more than just knowledge and skills – we left with new friends, part of a group of people invested in each other’s success and dedicated to helping each other achieve our goals.
