(VIRTUAL) WRITING WORKSHOP
Write Here, Write Now | Chris Malloy: "Eating Your Words: How to Write Intelligently and Effectively About Food"
6:30-8PM MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 28
WRITE HERE WRITE NOW
LOCATION: ONLINE



Need ideas to help you start writing? Join us for a monthly pop-up workshop co-presented by Phoenix College and ASU's Piper Center for Creative Writing.

Each session includes a 30-minute mini-class and a writing prompt exploring some aspect of craft—setting, dialogue, character development, etc.—followed by focused writing time and the opportunity to read your work to the group.

This workshop will be hosted online as part of our virtual event series.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
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?
