Food writing is big business. Whether you want to pen a cookbook, perk up your blog, or refresh your restaurant’s menu, this class will help you spice up your culinary descriptions and compost tired writing habits. Through discussion and in-class exercises, author/blogger Dynise Balcavage will guide you through the basic tenets of impactful food writing in a variety of genres – from essays, articles and reviews to cookbooks and memoirs. She’ll also offer tips on finding your voice, writing book proposals and query letters, and how and where to market your work. Bring a notebook, pen and an appetite for writing.
