"When emerging from the bubble of creating stories, it is really helpful to know what to do, what approach to take. The course has given me confidence that I can get my work out there and hopefully someone will like it enough to represent it and/or publish it."
- Catherine Cookson

"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!"

Dear Gotham,
 
I took Alison Stein's Food Writing One-Day Intensive class in August 2011. And it was more than worth it, although it involved a DC-NYC round-trip. For me, one of the most valuable parts of the class was when Alison evaluated our article ideas. It also helped to hear her latest successful food writing pitch, which she read to us off her smartphone. 
 
Three months later, I successfully pitched my first food writing piece to Maryland Life, a regional glossy magazine. I pitched another food-related piece—this time a personal essay—to another local magazine. It’s due out this spring in Bethesda Magazine. And just recently, I pitched yet another food article to the largest in-flight magazine in the U.S. It will come out this summer. I guess you could say I’m on a roll.
