Writing a Travel Guide!

E.Q: What do I need to know before I write my own travel guide?


The Basics.

A travel guide needs to…

  • Be persuasive (it’s job is to persuade people to visit)

  • Be informative (give information)

  • Be accurate (use correct facts and statistics)

  • Be lively and entertaining (a travel guide uses persuasive techniques to make it sound interesting)


But, what are persuasive techniques?

…they are particular ‘things’ that make the writing sound lively and also convince the listener to think or feel a particular way!


But, what are persuasive techniques?

You can use the following acronym to help you remember the techniques to use in your writing!

A – alliteration

F – facts

O – opinion

R – rhetorical questions

E – emotive language

S – statistics

T – three (rule of three)

+

P – personal pronouns

You may also notice jokes, anecdotal comments and a sense of nostalgia about the place!


Challenge! Can you spot any?

What’s Bristol got to offer you? Well, the list is endless. With over 1500 restaurants and cafes, hundreds of hotels and streets steeped in history; Bristol simply has something for everyone.

Personal Pronoun

Rhetorical Question

Three – rule of three (restaurants, hotels and streets)

Alliteration


ALL – MOST - SOME

  • On the next slide is an example of travel writing

  • It’s going to be a challenge because it was written by an adult for an adult audience (the Telegraph newspaper)

  • So, all of you must read the red and find THREE TECHNIQUES

  • Most of you could read the red and the blue and find FOUR TECHNIQUES

  • Some of you could read the red, the blue and the green and find FIVE TECHNIQUES!


Time to Dig…!

  • Cornwall is defined by its magnificent coastline with 300 miles of dunes and cliffs, medieval harbours and oak-forested creeks – and every mile accessible on foot. What more could you ask for?

  • Surfing is big draw, for all ages – bodyboarding too – and lessons are available on most north-coast beaches. The cold sea is no deterrent as the new generation of super-stretchy wetsuits fit like second skins.

  • Ignore that black cloud that the BBC weather people slap so readily on the county. According to the locals, the sun always shines in Cornwall – at least once a day, anyway.


Time to Check!

  • 3 things that a travel guide needs

  • 2 persuasive techniques

  • 1 word to describe the tone of a travel guide


A Model of Excellence

E.Q: What does a travel guide need to look and sound like?


A Model of Excellence

  • I have written a travel guide about my favourite place in Bristol – Clifton

  • Take a look at the model of excellence and see what you’re impressed with!

  • It would be even better if you could start thinking about a success criteria!


Travel Guide – Draft 1


An Example

  • Your first task is to find an example travel guide, online, that you can use as a model to refer to when writing your own!

  • The History
