Get your passports ready for Edinburgh!

There is an incredible opportunity to join one of our groups in the stunning city of EDINBURGH. Our Edinburgh programme focuses more on Scottish culture, history and the landscape... meaning that it's not all about Braveheart and bagpipes. The Edinburgh CTR project incorporates local cul-ture, history, geography, religion, customs and current affairs within the programme. Project mem-bers work together within a team on a creative travel writing research project. This year’s Project members will be designing and creating a tourist guide aimed at students and young people coming to Edinburgh.

Project members experience first-hand all the entertainment Edinburgh has to offer visitors, such as museums, parks, points of interest, bars, clubs and magnificent buildings and history. Project mem-bers conduct interviews, write reviews on entertainment, up and coming areas and must-dos when you visit Scotland's capital city. After compiling the reviews, the group is then responsible for the design, photography, graphics and layout of the booklet. As part of the programme they are assisted with professional journalism workshops. The guide, for us as an independent private company is non-profit making although project members gain full copy rights and have sold copies in the past and continue to do so. We make copies available to the public audience mainly online which can be downloaded as an e-book or ordered as a hardcopy online.

The project schedule usually incorporates professionally held workshops during the mornings and in the afternoons the project members are involved group meetings and other project related activities and visits helping them on the way in the production of a stunning online travel guide at the end of the project period.
