FOOD WRITING COURSES

Lesson 1: What kind of food writer are YOU?

Fancy being a food writer?

Are you a keen home cook who would like to share your recipes with a wider audience?  A trained chef who’s keen to develop a food-writing sideline? A blogger who’d like to see your work in print? If you fancy a new career as a food writer, be sure to book on one of my intensive, one-day food writing courses in London covering:

  • What kind of food writer are you? We explore your options: from restaurant reviewing to investigative journalism; food and travel, to healthy eating and celebrity interviews
  • How to break in. Openings for absolute beginners.
  • How to pitch your ideas to editors of web-sites, newspapers and magazines
  • How to present recipes clearly so they are easy to follow
  • Why seasonality is key to food writing
  • How to give your ideas topical hooks and timely tags
  • How to write appetisingly and avoid cliches
  • What makes a good restaurant review

Give yourself an edge in this highly competitive field. Cost £249 – or £199 each if you bring a friend.

One-day London food writing courses (in SW12) run from 10:30am-4pm. 

Upcoming dates: 17,18, 19 Aug; 14, 15, 16 Sep; 19, 20, 21 Oct; 9, 10, 11 Nov, 5 Dec 2017; 11, 12, 13 Jan, 2018.   If London isn’t convenient for you, try my email service.

How to book on one of my London food-writing courses:

It’s so easy. Step 1: choose your date.  Step 2: I’ll confirm availability and email you payment details. Step 3: please pay the course fee in full to secure your place and receive a choice of short writing exercises (you only have to do one) to complete by the course start date. Not compulsory but it gives me a clear idea of where your talents and interests lie. The course fee is not refundable but you can change your chosen date if something comes up. Step 4: Submit your exercise to me and I’ll email you full joining instructions.
