"A dream job," people say when they speak about earning a living writing about food. This two hour workshop will teach you the basics of food writing suitable for articles, recipes, memoirs and other non-fiction types of food books -- as well as the slightly different craft of reviewing restaurants. You'll read samples of excellent (and not so excellent) articles and reviews, and practice writing your own food stories. You'll even get to play critic and write a practice mini-review. Especially with the advent of the blog, the opportunity to be read and sometimes paid to write on the subject has never been greater. After this two-hour session, you'll leave as satisfied as if you've eaten a large portion of (name your favorite food).
Fran R. Schumer's articles have appeared in most sections of the New York Times (Science, Food, Home, Book Review, Travel, Education Life and Sunday Magazine). She has been a columnist for the New York Times and a restaurant reviewer for both the New York Times New Jersey Section and New York magazine, where she was the Underground Gourmet.
