Description

Join us this fall for a 6-week intensive course on breaking into the food writing world led by veteran food writer and editor Devra Ferst.


We’ll cover matching the tone of a publication, honing the angle of a story, and pitching. Plus, writing functional yet entertaining recipe headnotes, concise and smart maps and guidebook entries, and more styles of writing that will help you get your byline out there.


Classes will include reading and writing assignments, as well as individual feedback. For any questions about the class, reach out to devra@devraferst.com.
