The Writers' Federation of Nova Scotia is pleased to offer an introductory session on the art of food writing with Simon Thibault, author of the cookbook Pantry and Palate: Remembering and Rediscovering Acadian Food.
This class will take a look at varoius forms of food writing, from memoirs to cookbooks to journalism. Food writing is more than an exercise in nostalgia; it is a window into places, ideas, context, and stories.
This introductory session will give members the chance to submit a 250-word sample of their work (due one week before the workshop), which can be presented to the class. (The writing sample component of the class is not mandatory.)
