Panel: The Art Of Travel Writing


[For the full 3-day ZafigoX 2018 event, please visit www.zafigox.com. ZafigoX 2018 All-Access Pass Holders can attend this session for FREE with onsite registration at the door]

Travel writing lets us traverse the world on page or screen, journeying everywhere from the beautiful mountain villages of Nepal to the breathtaking beaches of The Philippines.

Discover how to become a travel writer by listening and speaking to experienced women — an editor, a writer, and a blogger — of print and online publications. Determine your writing style in this session and explore the different types of articles you can write.

The panel line up includes:

Anita Ahmad
Anita has spent the last 15 years working in the humanitarian and social development fields, and has travelled to 50 countries thus far. She has worked in conflict countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, and Sudan despite the evident risks. Anita loves to travels because she says it helps her discover both herself and humanity through what she sees and experiences.

Eliza Thomas

Although she graduated from film school, Eliza had always had a passion for writing. She got her break in the publishing industry in 2012 at Cleo Magazine Malaysia. As an editor, she has spent the last six years writing and editing for various print and digital magazines in Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, and Hong Kong. She is currently the editor of Zafigo.com, a website that is dedicated to uncovering women’s potential through informed and independent travel.

Mei Mei Chu
Mei Mei first started travelling at age 18, at a time where travel narrative and images were dominated by men. “Where are the Asian women who travel?” she asked herself, thus sparking a life-long commitment to meimeichu.com, a travel blog where she shares intimate and honest stories from the experiences of travelling solo. Mei works to inspire other young women to seek their own adventures and through it, find independence, strength, and empowerment.
