About this course:

Food is a fact of life, a universal shared culture, and amongst our most intimate concerns. Now, more than ever, food looms large in our personal, political, environmental and cultural spheres. For writers, food can inspire a lifetime supply of evocative literature. In four, half-day sessions spanning two weekends, we will consider current approaches to food, read great food writing, do in class exercises and overnight assignments for class critique, shaping a work through multiple drafts. Students will discover exciting ways to write about food, as well as expand their creative horizons regarding outlets, whether it be food-centric blogs, online literary sites, podcasts, social media, books, or publishing with traditional mainstream media. Genres covered include fiction, non-fiction, memoir, essay, and poetry. Course is appropriate for all writing levels, from fresh beginner to fine-aged pro. Possible Guest Speaker.
