Writing about food is a way of writing about a lot of things—people, pleasure, culture, travel, adventure, ethics and yourself. Whatever your approach may be, this workshop is an opportunity to talk and learn about the challenges of the craft—from finding the right word to finding the right publisher. We'll combine the conversation with a shared food experience—a simple communal meal at Pagoda in Dinkytown. Participants will be encouraged to publish their writing in TCFoodies, the food section of the Twin Cities Daily Planet. If there is sufficient interest, this may become a monthly event, with the opportunity to share work between sessions.
Cost is $25 per person, including dinner and course fee, but not including gratuity or beverages. Space is limited; register at The DataBank.
