Food & Memory and the Art of Storytelling FILLING

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

Our experience with smell and taste often unlocks a memory – like Proust’s madeleine in ‘Remembrance of Things Past’. In Shayma’s workshop, we will talk about how food is nostalgic and triggers memories – and how to tap into your own experiences to develop personal narratives centered around food. In the workshop, Shayma will share her personal experiences, and share her knowledge to give you insider information on how to write evocatively for your blog or freelance features. Shayma will also talk about how to pitch food memoir-style stories to different media platforms – and how to find your own unique voice. Bring your ideas to the workshop for a brainstorming session in which we will collectively explore the connections between food and memory through writing!
