Lonely Planet workshop

Melbourne will be inundated with travel writers this week as Lonely Planet HQ hosts its annual author workshop. The company has a unique approach in gathering together authors to outline strategy, provide training and listen to opinions.

While much of the week is top secret, you can get a look inside the building thanks to this short film written by a former student of mine, Paul Callaghan, that was shot on location in the Melbourne office. Ironically it also looks at another sort of conference between a group of hitmen. Let's hope this week's event has a few less violent outbursts.
