Hungry for Words: An Introduction to Food Writing

Anyone can write about a meal, but truly great food writing informs, entertains, and inspires. We’ll take a holistic approach to the art and craft of modern food writing, understanding what makes great food writers endure, trying different genres, generating ideas, assembling nonfiction book proposals, discussing culinary travel writing, and addressing the complexities of recipe writing. Writing exercises will be incorporated. This class is designed for aspiring and working food writers, bloggers, and seasoned culinary professionals who want to examine the way they approach their craft.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
