Write a First Draft of Your Book Proposal
International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) annual conference
If you have an idea for a book, or you’ve been procrastinating about writing your proposal, this is the class for you. We’re going to write one together, section by section. I’ll send you some preliminary info in advance about best practices, and then you’ll come prepared to write.
It’s time again for the biggest food blogging conference in the US. After an absence of a few years, I’m back to moderate a panel about self-publishing vs. traditional publishing, for food bloggers who want to publish a cookbook. You’ll also find breakout sessions, small group workshops, two keynotes, and an awesome closing party. There’s over two days of events and sessions, with up to 500 bloggers in attendance.

Food Bloggers of Canada conference (FBC2014)
Four Seasons Vancouver Hotel
I’m excited to return to my hometown of Vancouver to be part of this first-rate conference. I’ll be teaching a 3-hour class on the craft of food writing on Friday for $125, and speaking on food blogging ethics, whether for recipe writing or restaurants, during the conference on Saturday. The organizers got a great deal on rooms at the Four Seasons, so I’m expecting swank chocolates on pillows and fancy soaps.
