Food is an expression of our identity like no other. What we eat, who we eat with, why we eat, what we can/can’t eat, it all stems from who we are.
In this two-hour writing workshop, we will have a safe and open discussion about our relationship with food and food culture beyond the senses and explore and share our different approaches to the things we eat.
By looking at examples of other food writing, we will see how we can use food as a literary gateway to express our identities, and through small writing exercises we will explore how food can be used as a connection device.
