Food Writing for Blogs and Print: Translate What's on Your Plate

  • In this class, we'll look at what makes a good food story and consider how voice, content and reporting all contribute to the piece
  • We'll examine the work of various writers and discuss how different techniques operate. 
  • We'll examine the evolution of the genre from old media stories to food blogs, and see how the style and content have changed. 

Topics covered:

  • the importance of reporting
  • the importance of voice and the issue of first person narration
  • how POV has changed with the internet
  • how to write a recipe
  • why food photography is increasingly important
  • how to integrate quotes within stories
  • This class will not require reading material, but will require participation in discussion.
