This month: Eating Your Words: How to Write Intelligently and Effectively About Food with Chris Malloy
Food writing can be a windowpane, a microscope, a telescope, a Palantir. Even when writing fiction or non-fiction you wouldn’t deem food writing, approaching food the right way draws in your reader on a deep, sensory level. In this course, we’ll talk about how to tease the senses, about how to deploy food to drop the reader into a scene. We’ll also taste food and get into the weeds of description. Then we’ll move on to food as a tool for seeing. How can we use food to speak about food-adjacent subjects, like culture, history, hopes, and dreams? And for those interested, how might you get started in the world of food journalism?
