Effin Older

In mid-June, Jules and Effin Older presented “Travel Journalism — The only profession as romantic as it sounds” at the Mechanics’ Institute in San Francisco. Their presentation was organized by Suzie Rodriguez on behalf of BATW.

The presentation covered money (and lack thereof), CVBs, FAM tours, why writers must always carry a camera (a phone camera is fine), writing about travel for business magazines and newspaper sports pages, making minimovies, backing up data on the road, and starting travel journalism in your hometown(s).

The Olders handed out BATW fliers and promoted the website, BATW.org.

“A GT was HBA,” Jules says.
