Travel writing has never been more interesting or more diverse than it is today. It has both broad appeal and literary import, with television personalities such as Michael Palin to be found in the genre alongside Nobel Laureates such as VS Naipaul. In this session we present five very different travel writers – from Portsmouth and beyond – with very different approaches to the craft. Drawing on their own enthralling travel experiences, their work spans poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction and journalism.
