How can a recipe tell a story? And how might recipes become our guides for making zines? In this class, we'll read excerpts of food-related work from Hetty McKinnon, Samantha Irby, Samuel Ligon, and Patricia Smith. Then we'll mash up family recipe-writing traditions with poetry, flash fiction, and the personal essay to see what emerges on the other side. By the end of class, each student will have written and made their own food-focused zine.
