Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Month

Helen GreenwoodA Taste of Food Writing

with Helen Greenwood


Explore the science of taste and the language of food in this one-day workshop for both aspiring and published food writers with renowned food journalist, Helen Greenwood.

A Taste of Food Writing will give you the opportunity to analyse set texts for different genres and styles of food writing and discuss the technical aspects of writing including structure, language and editing. You will identify your own style and audience, and complete your own writing exercises. Exploring the fundamentals of journalism and how they apply to your writing, you will also find ideas for print, radio, TV, blogs, books and social media, plus the best ways to pitch your ideas for publication and broadcast.

Helen will guide you through an organaleptic chocolate tasting so you can understand the connections between mouth and mind: how taste and smell and language work together. Last but not least, attendees will also take home Helen's comprehensive list of suggested reading on food.
The course includes:

• A full day's intensive tuition from 9am - 4pm
• Lunch and regular tea & coffee breaks
• A copy of a recent A&U publication

Book soon to avoid disappointment.
