Want to be a food writer but don’t know how to start? Already a food writer but feeling stumped or uninspired? Whether a beginner or experienced writer, you’ll explore every aspect of writing food, from recipes to restaurant reviews, from profiles to feature articles, from food memoir to food history to the issues that make food a compelling read in today’s news. Read, write and share thoughts about what makes the best food writing, what makes it salable, how to pitch a story, how to craft a cookbook, or just how and where to begin.
Join award-winning cookbook author and food journalist Nancy Harmon Jenkins and several of her peers, including Mitchell Davis, executive vice-president of the James Beard Foundation and Kathleen Fleury, editor in chief of Downeast Magazine. Together, we’ll break apart the complex world of food writing and see what makes it work when it does—and also when it doesn’t.
