So You Want to Write a Cookbook?
Online Class through Civic Kitchen
Maximum 20 students
1 – 4 p.m. PST
This Zoom classes taps into a dream project for many. We’ll discuss the publishing industry, how to come up with a sellable idea, whether to get an agent, and then the cookbook process itself, including photography issues and recipe writing. We go into self-publishing pros and cons too. There’s time to get your questions answered, plus handouts to study and a fun exercise on recipe editing.
Newsletter subscribers get the first chance to sign up for my classes. Please join my newsletter to stay informed.

Jumpstart Your Cookbook Proposal
3 Tuesdays, 4-7 p.m. PST/7-10 p.m. EST
13 students maximum
If you’re procrastinating about writing your cookbook proposal, or you don’t know what to write, or you need accountability, this is the class for you. As a subscriber you get the first opportunity to sign up.
During the sessions, you will write first drafts of several sections of the proposal. At the end of three weeks, you’ll have the start of a proposal, with help from me on how to make it irresistible to an agent or editor. I’ll also share my most recent proposal, which led to a beautiful cookbook by Rizzoli.

If you’ve wondered how to get a cookbook published, how to start a blog, improve your freelance writing or self publish, let’s have a whole hour together so you can move forward with your goals.
