Travel Tactics, Creating Time Wealth, and Lateral Thinking

“If in doubt, just walk until your day becomes interesting” Rolf Potts
"Rolf Potts is the author of Vagabonding, one of my favorite books of all-time.  It was one of just two books (the other was Walden) that I carried with me around the world from 2004-2005.  Those adventures led directly to The 4-Hour Workweek" said Tim Ferriss about world traveler and author Rolf Potts.

Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel, Potts' first book, mixes practical advice with philosophical insights about the value of travel.  Upon its release in 2003, the Boston Globe called it "a valuable contribution to our thinking, not only about travel, but about life and work."  USA Today dubbed the author "Jack Kerouac for the Internet Age”.
"World travel doesn’t have to be a wealthy person’s sport. In this often hilarious conversation, Rolf and I dig deep into travel tactics, creating time wealth, “managing success,” and much more.  It’s a fun romp through every imaginable topic, from business to poetry, and from Wall Street to psychedelics."  ~ Tim Ferriss

Creative Nonfiction Workshop
at the American Academy in Paris, France, July 1-29, 2016  

Rolf Potts and Dinah Lenney will facilitate this workshop, which delves into the essence of nonfiction storytelling.  Since the Paris setting is ripe for place-based narrative, travel writing will be a central aspect of this workshop — but students will also be encouraged to explore the art of personal essay and memoir. 
Though this class primarily aims to sharpen and evolve writers' instincts for constructing narratives, it will also touch on the practical matters of working with agents and editors, and submitting stories for publication.
