Worldwide traveller, acclaimed author, founder of “Vagabonding” and creative writing lecturer at Yale University, Rolf Potts recently took on the No Baggage Challenge and won! He’ll tell us more about his trip around the world, and his ethic of independent travel during the festival. He’s taught writing workshops in Paris, Hawaii, San Francisco, Reykjavik, New York, and St Petersburg, and now you can also enrol in his exclusive writing workshop in Melbourne.

Rolf’s workshop: ‘The Art and Ethics of Travel Writing’, will run on Wednesday March 20th from 9.30am-4.30pm. Places are limited, so book via the ‘Program’ link to make sure you don’t miss out. Rolf will also feature in our Saturday 11am panel entitled ‘Vagabonding – making long term world travel a reality’, and as part of our Saturday 4pm debate: ‘Smart Traveller or Reckless Tourist? The Ethics of Travelling Today.’
