Travel Writing: From Oral Tradition to Blogging
Tristan Rutherford is a multiple award winning author whose work appears in The Times, The Guardian and the Daily Telegraph.
Growing up in Lichfield and the Bahamas, Tristan set foot in over 50 countries before the age of 25. A decade in the travel writing industry took him further still, with extended forays to Albania, Syria, Argentina, Western China and Eastern Turkey. Until re-settling in Lichfield very recently, he has split his time between Nice and Istanbul writing guidebooks for National Geographic, Time Out, Frommer’s and DK among others. He is a proud member of the British Guild of Travel Writers.
Tristan also lectures in travel journalism at several universities including Central Saint Martins and Kingston University in London, and Galatasaray University in Istanbul.
