The Big Food Writing Contest

Just a reminder – the deadline for Bumbershoot’s “Food for Thought” contest, is 11:59 p.m. Sunday, August 2 (for all the details and an electronic entry form, open this link). To enter, compose a short essay (500-word max) focused on a memorable food experience — pleasant or not so much.

And I can’t quite get over that I’m judging this with the incomparable Tom Douglas. I’ve long been a fan of his for years. We’ll be discussing the winning entry (and some of the non-winning ones) during our chat labeled “F is for Food,” on Saturday September 5th (noon-1:15 p.m.).

The Seattle Times has promised to publish the winning essay and treat winner and a guest to two Platinum VIP passes to Bumbershoot.
