WLHB classes are taught online, making them flexible to any time zone and easy to fit into the schedule of a current or wanna-be world traveler. But they always retain the small-class format that means students get personal attention, close edits, and plenty of instructor interaction.

Beyond the craft of writing itself, WLHB supports writers through the reality of life as a lifestyle writer, with pitching and publishing information included in every class. Roadmaps for the job don’t exist, but the teachers at WLHB use their own experience and expertise earned over years in the industry to give guidance, strategies, and individual advice to students in both group classes and independent studies.

Online Writing Classes from the Experts

Each of WLHB’s online classes comes from a highly acclaimed, professional writer who makes their living full-time working in the genre they are teaching, meaning that they know exactly how the industry operates and what editors are looking for right now. The classes are taught through an online platform that allows students to ask questions, interact with their peers, and get direct, personalized feedback from the expert teachers.

How To Make a Living as a Food Writer or a Travel Writer

Becoming a freelance food, travel, or lifestyle writer can be a tough road in an ever-changing ecosystem of digital and print publications. WLHB teachers stay up-to-date on the latest editor needs and publication shifts, allowing them to help guide students to reach all of their writing goals—be that simply crafting a better sentence for their travel guide or pitching an ambitious feature to a big-name glossy magazine.

Creating a Community

WLHB was started by a pair of writers looking for the best way to widen the world of who gets to be a lifestyle writer, and it carries that mission into everything in the company. Classes are designed to be useful to writers at any level or stage of their career, and to foster interaction between writers to help create a community feel—both during and after the class. Additionally, each class has a minimum of one scholarship spot open for any student from an under-served or under-represented population of any kind.
