food writing short course at The William Angliss Institute

Food writer: A job description many want, some claim without justification, and others think they could never achieve.

Regardless of whether you want to be the next Ruth Reichl, Brillat-Savarin... or you just want to know what the hell all the fuss is about, the following is for you. 

The William Angliss Institute's Surry Hills outpost is proud to host senior Fairfax journalist and editor of the Good Food Shopping Guide (and previous editor of the Good Food Guide) Helen Greenwood, for a two part food writing workshop.

For half a day each Saturday, you'll begin exploring the fundamentals of food writing, from understanding the basics of critical eating, the science of taste and the language of food (note: avoid using the words 'moist' or 'yummy'). You'll also look at the various genres and platforms food writers can use to express themselves, or be published. 

I have the honor of guest speaking this Saturday the 18th to talk about the relationship between journalists and marketers, blogging (why do it, how not to become an oxygen pilferer) and other social media forms of expression. We will also cover how to understand yourself as a potential profile or brand. 

No prior experience is necessary, just an appetite to learn. 

Where: William Angliss Institute, 26-32 Waterloo Street, Surry Hills 2010
When: Saturday 18 and 25 10.00am - 4.00pm August 2012
Cost: $450
