New York Writers Workshop: Introduction to Food Writing at Goddard Riverside Community Center

New York Writers Workshop and Goddard Riverside Community Center present:

Introduction to Food Writing with Donna Minkowitz

Food writing is some of the most sensual writing around. It can be earthy, lyrical, even cultural and political. But while many people long to write about food, most don’t know quite where to start. In this three-hour intensive, students will learn how to write well about the taste, smell, touch, sound, and sight of food; about the emotions and memories that food evokes; and about — in each particular instance — what food can “mean.”

Donna Minkowitz is the restaurant critic for Gay City News, and she has also written for New York magazine, the New York Times, Salon, The Nation, Tablet, and the Village Voice. Minkowitz has taught nonfiction writing and memoir since 1998, at venues including the 92nd St. Y, The Kitchen, In Our Own Write, and the New York Writers Workshop. Her recent memoir Growing Up Golem: How I Survived My Mother, Brooklyn and Some Really Bad Dates was a finalist for both a Lambda Literary Award and for the Judy Grahn Nonfiction Award. Her first memoir, Ferocious Romance, won a Lammy.
