We are Treetop Travel Journalism
We are a creative organisation, based in Berlin, that provides the opportunity to visit and write about one of the world’s most intriguing cities, via our travel journalism courses.
What we do
Those on the 3-4 weeks projects attend travel writing classes where they plan and write a magazine style travel guide. The programme culminates in the publication of their work with an ISBN number. The project also includes our unique graffiti workshops, German language classes and customised tours of the city.
Our Travel Writing Course
3 days per week, those on our project meet at our creative writing workshops. The time here is spent planning the guide – who’s the target audience?, what will we write about?, who is going to visit which site? And so on. Our travel journalism mentor is on hand to make sure the guide is going to plan and to give the project members feedback on their work. We also have weekly graphic design meetings to make sure the guide looks great as well being beautifully written. The guides can be about anything the team agrees on - our next project will be solely focused on the blues scene in Berlin.
Our Berlin Style Graffiti Workshops
We are delighted to have added weekly graffiti workshops to our programme! Under the tutelage of celebrated artist Ale Senso, our students will learn the basics of stenciling and tagging, as well as spray painting techniques. They’ll also leave equipped with a piece of stunning work upon completion of the course. The classes will take place in Ale’s workspace ‘Apartment A’, a derelict building which she was given permission to paint in for a few months before its upcoming renovation. The landlord was so blown away by her work that he decided let her stay, and she has been working there for the last two years.
