Food Writing 101


A La Carte columnist James Norton is giving a seminar on food writing a week from Saturday at the Mill City Writers' Workshop, an organization founded by author/editor (and, yep, daughter of Don) Ashley Shelby.

Norton will be talking about reviewing restaurants, food blogging, and the process of writing a food book--from creating a proposal to promoting the finished product. Norton is not only an excellent instructor, but is as engaging in person as he is on the page, so you can expect an afternoon packed with information, a cheese tasting (!), and lively discussion.

The seminar takes place Saturday, May 3rd, from 12-2 p.m. at 6 Sixth Avenue North, Suite 3, in Hopkins and costs $40. For more info, click here.
