Do you like to write about food? Fancy yourself a budding restaurant critic? (C’mon, I’ve seen the 284 reviews you’ve posted to Yelp.) Do you dream of one day taking Jonathan Gold’s job? Would you simply like to learn more about food writing and improve your skills?

Thursday evening 826LA will host the latest in their Writing Series for Adults: Food Writing. The panel will discuss writing about food in various media (blogs, newspaper, and books,) as well as the business side of food writing such as composing a recipe, how to review a restaurant (I’m lookin’ at you, Yelpers,) and how to get published.

The panel will feature award-winning L.A. food blogger Pat Sapperstein and Pulitzer Prize winning food journalist Jonathan Gold, among other L.A. food luminaries.

If food writing holds any interest for you at all, you better jump on this. You won’t find this much knowledge on the subject anywhere else.
