About this event

In these extraordinary times, many have turned to food for comfort whether it be cooking and baking new things or appreciating what has been taken for granted. Become inspired along with other writers in an encouraging and lively workshop that uses food as a recipe for inspiration. Sarah Stern will lead this four-week workshop series and provide writing exercises that center on food in its broadest definition to stir-up new writings. Participants will read and discuss selected contemporary prose and poems, some of which use food as a door to memories and associations. Participants will then receive prompts to write, share and discuss their own work. Beginning, emerging and seasoned writers are welcome to attend. This workshop is meant for those looking for a supportive community who wish to bring their writing to the next level.

Workshop Schedule:

Tuesday, October 19th from 5:00 - 7:00 PM

Tuesday, October 26th from 5:00 - 7:00 PM

Tuesday, November 2nd from 5:00 - 7:00 PM

Tuesday, November 9th from 5:00 - 7:00 PM

Organizer Bronx Council on the Arts

Organizer of BMP| Memoir through Food that Inspires

Founded by visionary community leaders in 1962, The Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA) is a pioneer in advancing cultural equity in The Bronx. From our early beginnings as a presenter of affordable arts programming in select Bronx neighborhoods, we have grown into a cultural hub that serves the entire creative ecosystem of the borough.  Our programs serve artists, the public, and the field at large by building connections, providing resources, and advocating for equitable practices. Then as now, we focus on supporting the work of underrepresented groups – especially artists of color, women, and members of the LGBTQ+ community. Through this lens we offer affordable programs for seniors and youth, and provide direct services to over 1,000 artists and 250 community-based arts groups each year.
