pollitics and prose logoI’ve partnered with acclaimed independent bookstore Politics & Prose and The Writer’s Center in D.C. to offer my weekend-long introduction to food writing camp on March 21-22, 2015.

Known as “Hungry for Words,” this workshop covers a lot of ground in two jam-packed days. We start with a brief look into the history of food writing and its most noted contributors, then shift into a myriad of fast-paced discussion on developing book proposals, writing food blogs, pitching stories to online and print publications and a number of writing exercises. Attendees will leave armed with a thick workbook crammed with writing exercises, examples of great writing, a real-life book proposal and query letters plus an extensive reading list. An online follow-up session for the group is included as part of the program.

Space is limited. Cost is $250 per person. To sign up, visit Politics & Prose registration page.
