Group Description

Bay Area Travel Writers

A Professional Organization of Travel Writers and Photographers

Bay Area Travel Writers, Inc., based in San Francisco, CA, is a not-for-profit, professional association of writers and photographers with outstanding achievements in travel journalism. These professionals share their unique stories in newspapers, magazines, books, internet publications, and travel industry publications.

BATW members travel and report locally and all over the world. Some specialize in guidebooks, others in golf, travel for singles, families, or seniors, or in photography. Each writer and photographer seeks to present the world in ways that enrich, inform and fascinate, and to expose their readers to the people, culture, arts, and natural splendors of each destination.

Monthly meetings, held since 1985, provide a lively exchange of information among our widely traveled colleagues. Speakers from tourist boards and destinations make presentations to inform members of travel trends and news. We also hold panel discussions on such subjects as marketing, publishing and photography.

BATW encourages the highest professional standards among its members. Up-and-coming journalists may join as Provisional Members, and may participate with veteran journalists. Travel industry professionals are invited to become Associate Members.
