Thursday night 826LA presented a seminar titled, "Food Writing!" And as fans of punctuation know, anything with an exclamation point has got to be good.
826LA is a community organization offering free tutoring, workshops, desktop publishing and all-around grooviness to the communities of Echo Park, Venice and Westwood. 826LA is supported by paid workshops for adults and by the supercool Time Travel Mart, which is where you can pick up milk, kazoos, and products relating to robots, the future, or radiation and its effects.
The seminar was advertised as discussing "writing about food in various media: blogs, newspapers, and books. We will also talk about the business side of the genre: how to go about composing a recipe, review a restaurant, and how to get published."
