About Food Writing 101

Food Writing 101 is a well-rounded introduction to food writing includes sessions dedicated to food journalism, food service writing, recipe writing, food blogging, food criticism, writing food history, food-based creative nonfiction, and food memoir.

This six-week course provides the training and mentoring that today’s freelance food bloggers, authors, and writers find tough to come by. Traditionally, writers learned their craft from editors in newsrooms, magazines, or publishing houses. Today’s editors rarely have the time to educate and nurture their writers—and writers are often working independently from far-flung locales. Organized and led by food writer, author, and internet pioneer Molly O’Neill, this course gives you traditional support and training.

Food Writing 101 is a weekly call-in workshop, comprised of a small group writers with similar skills, publishing experience and goals. Students receive weekly assignments to be workshopped via conference call with Molly O’Neill and guest professional editors. Students also receive a weekly syllabus of targeted readings and a podcast lecture or interview with some of the top writers and editors in the field, including Ruth Reichl, author; Kim Severson, The New York Times; Helen Rosner, EATER NY; Francis Lam, The Splendid Table; Rachel Khong, Lucky Peach;  Jonathan Gold, The Los Angeles Times; Gabrielle Hamilton, chef & author, and others. (The interviews are pre-recorded and delivered as a podcast, allowing students to listen at their convenience.)

Each student also receives one 30-minute mentoring session designed to set goals and establish step-by-step guides for achieving those goals. Come join us to learn the craft of food writing from experts who support your work!
