Food Writing 101
The Institute for Culinary Education has launched the Center for Food Media, a program of academic courses for aspiring food writers, publicists, TV personalities, and -- even bloggers.
In this class, students will learn the essential tools for becoming a food journalist--without going to journalism school. Veteran food writers Ramin Ganeshram and Marge Perry, will share how to write a pitch letter that sells, how to get your work published even when you're just starting out, along with basic editing skills, the difference between the various types of food stories, and research tips and tricks. You will do in-class writing exercises in essay format and reviews based on tastings. And yes, you'll actually get to eat...and write about it. (Now, I ask you...how gastronomically cool is that?).
A program for Wine Writing will follow in early 2009.
