All Levels | Are you an avid foodie who loves to write? Or are you looking to master senses-based, descriptive prose to better compliment your food photography skills? This ‘101’ course is for writers interested in becoming food critics and those already working in the niche market of “epicurean”content. Through creative prompts and interactive activities, we will delve into penning culinary reviews, recipe writing, cookbook proposals, food memoirs, and blogs — in addition how to pitch samples of your work to digital and print publications. This class takes place online through our partners at Wet Ink, and sessions can be completed at your own pace throughout the week.

She is also guest faculty at The Highlights Foundation; a 2018 We Need Diverse Books mentorship finalist; and a 2017 World Food Championship judge.

She is equally grateful to have presented this year at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Writer's Institute and Write to Publish at Portland State University on digital marketing and social media strategy for writers.
