Barbara Sweeney is an engaging, encouraging and enthusiastic teacher. This one-day food writing workshop is designed around a series of writing tasks. Through them you will learn about different food writing styles, including memoir, recipe writing and feature stories. The course aims to get you started and includes tips in how to keep going, how to write well, and provides an overview of the in-turmoil publishing industry and where food writing and you may fit.
Barbara Sweeney likes food and words in equal measure and has made a career as both cook and writer. Barbara runs the annual food festival in Sydney, Food & Words, teaches food writing classes, and writes regularly for The Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food and Good Food Guide, where she is regional editor, and Country Style. In 2012 Barbara started Talking Cookbook, a project to remind us that cooking is a domestic every-day activity common to all and not a competition.
