Testimonials for Dianne
Are you a food enthusiast who loves to write, cook and eat? Do you devour food magazines and cookbooks in bed, or secretly dream of whipping up your own cookbook or blog? Do you wonder how to get started, noticed or published as a food writer?
This overview class will give you a taste of food writing in all its variations: blogging, recipe writing, freelancing for magazines and newspapers, and how to get a cookbook published. Writing exercises and an interactive classroom style will make the time fly by.
Instructor Dianne Jacob will lead you through a day designed to bring your simmering creativity and style to a boil, focusing on the senses, memory, and just plain good writing.
