Hi! This is an extra blog post just to tell you about food writing events I’m excited about — particularly a writing workshop in Italy this September. Here’s what’s coming up:
1. May 10, 2017
The 2017 Culinary Nutrition Conference
Hear from leading bloggers, researchers, educators, authors, nutritionists and more who will impact the way you work. Founder Meghan Telpner, nutritionist and head of the Academy of Culinary Nutrition, interviews me about food writing and cookbook proposals. It ncludes a swag bag full of downloads from experts. And it’s all free.
2. May 20, 2017
Food and Wine Conference
Rosen Shingle Creek, Orlando FLA
May 19-21, 2017/$325
I’m excited to present at this conference for the first time. On Saturday morning, I’ll be talking about how to get into the 1 percent of book proposals accepted by publishers. Yes that’s right: 1 percent is the industry average. Find out what it takes.
3. September 6-11, 2017
Food Writing for Food Lovers
Approx. $1900-$2375 US
Fly into Venice, stay in a villa, and work on your craft. Come to this 4-day workshop where we will visit artisans and write their stories. Attendance is limited to only six people, giving you lots of access to my host Demet Guzey, who teaches food writing at Le Cordon Blu in Paris, and me. We’ve planned a tortellini-making class, trips to excellent restaurants specializing in local cuisine, and private consulting time with each of us. You’ll work on the craft of storytelling, techniques to enhance your writing, and learn trends in food writing.
Hope to see you soon, whether virtually or in person.
