RCC-RILL Instructor Gail Kenna

“The Craft of Travel Writing” will be addressed in an upcoming course from the Rappahannock Community College Educational Foundation’s Rappahannock Institute for Lifelong Learning, to be held from 1 to 3 p.m. on April 18 and 25, and May 2 (Wednesdays) at the Lancaster Community Library in Kilmarnock.

Instructor Gail Kenna, who has taught literature and writing courses for RILL since 2005, is a published writer who has lived and taught in Europe, Southeast Asia, and South America. “The class is open to anyone, and I welcome beginning writers,” Kenna says. Students will have the opportunity to write their own short pieces, and to learn writing techniques from the book “In Patagonia,” by the late British author Bruce Chatwin, which explains how travel writers can incorporate various literary forms into the work they produce.

Advance registration, with a tuition payment of $35, is required to take this course. For more information on “The Craft of Travel Writing” and other upcoming courses, or to register, please call Sharon Drotleff at RCC’s Educational Foundation office (804-333-6707, or toll-free at 877-722-3679), or e-mail her at
