Led by Sarah Lohman, a culinary historian and the author of the bestselling book Eight Flavors: The Untold Story of American Cuisine (Simon & Schuster). She focuses on the history of food as a way to access the stories of diverse Americans. Her work has been featured in The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times, as well as on All Things Considered; and she has presented across the country, from the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington, DC to The Culinary Historians of Southern California. Her current project, Endangered Eating: Exploring America’s Vanishing Cuisine will be released with W.W. Norton & Co. in January 2023.

Are you interested in beginning a career in food writing or improving your craft?

This class will be based in discussion and practice to get you thinking about the particular skills required for a food writer. We’ll look at several pieces of contemporary food writing and analyze what makes them compelling.

We'll study narrative arcs and techniques for non-fiction writing that are important for food writers. Then we’ll expand your vocabulary and tighten your writing to make your pieces come alive. And we’ll also focus on practical aspects: how to find ideas, where to pitch them, and what rates your should expect.

This class will be helpful for anyone who needs to effectively communicate about food, but will be focused for journalists, bloggers, and authors.
