Food Writing Forum
April 5 - April 6
The New School is hosting a Food Writing Forum: Opportunities and Challenges in a Digital Age on Friday, April 5th and Saturday, April 6th.
As per organizer:
The food writing craft is in transition from the traditional world of magazines, newspapers, and cookbooks in print, to the digital world of food blogs, digital books, websites, online restaurant reviewing, memoirs, recipes, food photography and the influence of social networks. If observers and technologists are to be believed, many more changes are soon to come. Top food writers will examine the positive and negative food writing trends in the digital age.
