Alastair Scott's headshot

I give talks, workshops and readings on travel writing and crossing the boundary between travel writing and fiction. I'm happy to tailor my talks to the interests of specific audiences. Some of my talks use slide illustrations. I've frequently lectured to writing groups, schools, libraries and book festival audiences. I believe my skills embrace experience, humour, enthusiasm and clarity.
