IFWTWA strives to be a gathering point and resource base for an active membership composed of professionals engaged in the food, wine and travel writing as well as our associated members from supporting industries. As such, we felt a blog created by our members would stimulate conversation that would benefit all members. Once the Blog Committee got started discussing possible topics, we decided our first blog topic, Perks of Being a Food, Wine & Travel Writer was something we couldn’t resist sharing with the public.
The public is more than welcome to follow along with our blog. We’re sure to accumulate vast amounts of very useful information. We also encourage you to comment on the blogs, ask our authors questions which they may then answer in their next post or directly to your comment. The only prerequsite is that you become a subscriber of our website. It’s free! You will be asked to do so when you click the "Comment" link beneath the blog you wish to comment on. We will not USE or SELL your email without your permission.
The IFWTWA Excellence Awards program recognizes the world’s finest travel and tourism industry professionals as experienced and nominated by the organization’s journalist members.
