Welcome to the ISTW

International Society for Travel WritingFounded in 1997, the International Society for Travel Writing encourages and fosters the work of scholars, publishers, and practitioners of travel writing through a range of activities including conferences, a monthly newsletter, and our affiliation with the peer-reviewed journal Studies in Travel Writing. We invite you to join the Society and to learn more about the study and practice of travel writing. The ISTW is sponsored by Eland Books, the independent publisher specialising in travel titles.
