Want to launch a career in food writing? If you're in New York, food critic Alan Richman, the Dean of Food Journalism and Media Studies at the International Culinary Center, could be your guru. He's teaching a six-session evening course to help you gain the skills necessary to write about food for a magazine, newspaper, or website.
The class includes tips on how to pitch editors and how to write restaurant reviews, and includes a guest appearance from Serious Eats Overlord Ed Levine, who will talk about the secrets to modern food blogging and the new world of digital media. One session of the class will be devoted to careers in food PR and how to craft an effective press release.
The course takes place from July 9th, 2014 to August 13th, 2014 from from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday evenings at The International Culinary Center. You can find more details here.
Tuition is $1,100, but one lucky Serious Eater will attend for free.
