Plus, special presentations by the makers of White Lily Flour and the contributors to BiscuitFest’s new food writing initiative, The 50 States of Biscuits.


A Southern Food Writing Conference wouldn't be complete without food, and lots of it!  Your registration includes breakfast and lunch each day, prepared by some of our favorite chefs from around the South.  It also includes a special trip to Blackberry Farm for cocktails in the garden and an incredible dinner in The Barn.  This is an experience not to be missed. 


We are so excited to be presented by White Lily Flour for our 2017 Southern Food Writing Conference! The Conference is part of the schedule for the International Biscuit Festival, one of the most popular food events in the Southeast. Come and join us May 18-20 for all the fun!
