BlogHer Food 2014
Downtown Miami Hilton
Miami, FL
$406.94–$907.95 / Closing party $50

It’s time again for the biggest food blogging conference in the US. I’ve been a speaker here for many years, including the first year, where I was on a panel with soon-to-be superstar Ree Drummond (The Pioneer Woman). I’ll moderate a panel about self-publishing versus 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.


International Food Blogger Conference 2014 Seattle

September 19-21, 2014
International Food Bloggers Conference (IFBC)
The Westin Seattle
Seattle, WA

I’m a big supporter of this conference, where over the years, I’ve made friends, networked, and spoken on panels with superstars. This time I’m teaching a class about how to describe food using other techniques besides adjectives. You’ll be surprised by how your writing will spring to life.




FBC2014BannerOctober 17-19, 2014
Workshop Leader and Speaker
Food Bloggers of Canada conference (FBC2014)
Four Seasons Vancouver Hotel
Vancouver, Canada

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.
