Food Writing 101

All Levels | 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 and hone timely angles to pitch 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, Kat Kinsman, and more. (Warning: These class discussions will probably make you hungry!)

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
