Are you interested in beginning a career in food writing or improving your craft? This class will be based in discussion and practice to get you thinking about the particular skills required for a food writer. We’ll look at several pieces of contemporary food writing and analyze what makes them compelling. We'll study narrative arcs and techniques for non-fiction writing that are important for food writers. Then we’ll expand your vocabulary and tighten your writing to make your pieces come alive. And finally, we'll complete an exercise in class that will bring your new skill set into focus. This class will be helpful for anyone who needs to effectively communicate about food, but will be focused for journalists, bloggers, and authors.
