Find your voice & place in culture media & literature. In this course we'll delve deep into this vibrant field. We’ll explore the origins and history of food writing and its present-day explosion, reading and discussing varied forms, topics, and voices. Most importantly, we will write, in class and out, bettering our understanding of and ease with writing itself, and learning how to twine the twin crafts of writing and cooking to food writing. Food writing starts with a passionate interest in and knowledge about food and cooking, but requires the ability to own personal experience and translate it in a way that brings it alive for readers, engaging them through evocative, sensual language. Whether students write about producing, preparing, partaking, sourcing, eating, understanding or experiencing food, in this class they will learn how to make readers hungry – to be informed, educated, persuaded, or to eat. As we delve into the full spectrum of food writing—recipes, cookbooks of many types, restaurant reviews, blogs, magazine articles, personal essays, commentary, food history, travel pieces—we’ll also write a variety of forms, using hands-on writing practices, group discussion, and analysis. Classes include readings, discussion, writing. Students find their own voices, bringing spontaneity, passion, and originality to their unique food-storytelling.
