Hungry for Words: An Introduction to Food Writing

Anyone can write about a meal, but truly great food writing informs, entertains, and inspires. We’ll take a holistic approach to the art and craft of modern food writing, understanding what makes great food writers endure, trying different genres, generating ideas, assembling nonfiction book proposals, discussing culinary travel writing, and addressing the complexities of recipe writing. Writing exercises will be incorporated. This class is designed for aspiring and working food writers, bloggers, and seasoned culinary professionals who want to examine the way they approach their craft.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
