Student Quotes
"I rode the train home scribbling ideas in a notebook. The next morning I got up and wrote another chapter of an easy-reader book I'm experimenting with. As I wrote, I thought about all I'd learned in class about character development, believable dialogue, confict and resolution, and making the whole thing interesting to a youngster. I can't think of a better investment of my time than to spend a Saturday in this class!"

Food Writing
Food writing encompasses any kind of writing that focuses on food (or drink), be it a review of a restaurant down the street, an article on paprika or a wine tour of New Zealand, a story about helping grandma in the kitchen, or a collection of recipes for catfish. And you can experience the deliciousness of food writing without gaining a single pound.

Food writing requires a passion for food and the ability to summon its wonders in words. In our courses, you will learn about the full spectrum of food writing—reviews, memoir, essay, articles, blogs, books—as well as such writing craft elements as description, structure, voice, and angles. You will also learn how and where to market your work.

Whether you seek to write about producing, preparing, or just partaking of food, we’ll show you how to spice your writing just right.
