Food Writing 101
Food writing can be notoriously difficult to break into. After all, everyone eats and everyone has opinions. In this course, we will workshop a draft, craft pitches for publication, and discuss how to find the right editor. We will also discuss the politics and ethics of food writing, exploring contemporary work by Soleil Ho, Bani Amor, Joe Yonan, Osayi Endolyn, Naomi Tomky, Noah Cho, Michael Twitty, Alicia Kennedy, Kat Kinsman, and more. (Warning: Class discussions might make you hungry!)
