About this course:

Some of our most powerful memories are attached to our experience of food, but how do you turn those into writing that resonates? What skills and techniques can help writers transform a meal into powerful memoir, essay, or fiction? Food is a fact of life, a universal shared culture, and amongst our most intimate concerns. For the hungry writer it is also a vast storehouse packed with a lifetime supply of possibilities for evocative literature. Throughout the course of our delectable day spent together, you learn fresh new ways to work with food and memory in your writing through readings, exercises, critiques, and tastings. Our discussions and exercises cover fiction, memoir, and essay writing and are appropriate for every level of expertise, from the fresh beginner to the fine-aged writing pro.
