Food Links: Great Puttanesca & the High Cost of Top Chef Texas

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The amazing Molly O’Neill always has something cool going on. Her latest offering: Food Writing 101, a five-week virtual seminar and lecture series. It’s meant to be a virtual boot camp for both beginning food writers and established writers looking to polish their skills. 

It’s described this way: “Traditionally, writers learned the basics of reporting, writing and pitching their stories in newsrooms, magazines or from book editors. But today, the editors in traditional publishing are often charged with more work than is humanly possible and do not have the time to educate and nurture their writers. This reality is further complicated for writers who are committed to creating their blogs, articles and books independently and from far-flung locales.” There’s a tiered cost structure, from $50 for a single lesson to $400 for the full-on boot camp.
