Do you love food blogs? Write your own! The Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts is offering a workshop series on reviewing food and eateries, starting Jan. 24.
“Local food writer, editor and restaurant critic Andrew Morrison (Scout, The Westender, Vancouver Magazine, Conde Nast Traveler, Harry) presents Food Writing In The Modern Media Landscape: a hands-on class that details how one can turn a passion for food, wine and restaurants into a fulfilling hobby or a viable profession. Students will be taught the tricks, tools and realities of the trade (cameras, smart phones, web); explore new platforms like blogs and Twitter; learn how to carve out a niche in the food blogosphere; and be shown how to approach print outlets as a freelancer.” To register, go to their website.
