This workshop will dive into the question: what makes a strong voice in food writing, or any writing for that matter? What is voice? How does one build a voice that sets a tone that distinguishes your writing? Why does voice matter? This three day (6 hour) virtual workshop will focus on these questions as well as the fundamentals of great food writing— from writing a short essay, a memoir-style piece, to the secrets to writing a concise recipe.The goal of the class is to open up your culinary language, vision, and experience. We will talk about suggested readings, write in class and share our work in a constructive, safe environment. This class is for anyone curious about food writing, starting out in the field and or anyone who wants to learn from a James Beard award- winning food journalist.
