"Eating Your Words: How to Write Intelligently and Effectively About Food"

6:30-8PM MST MONDAY
1 SESSION: SEPTEMBER 28

Chris Malloy

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

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.

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?
