Something I am very interested in this year is polishing my food writing skills. I haven’t written much in the last few months, but plan to start focusing more on working on the blog. Well, I was just over at Cleveland Foodie and noticed that she had information on the Fabulous Food Show’s food writing seminar…count me in!
Here is some info from the website…
Food Writing Seminars now offered at the Fabulous Food Show!
New this year are two great food writing seminars led by Dianne Jacob and Laura Taxel. Jacob is a writer and writing coach, editor and author of Will Write For Food: The Complete Guide to Writing Cookbooks, Blogs, Reviews, Memoir, and More.
Laura Taxel is a food journalist, professional blogger, and author of Cleveland Ethnic Eats, A Guide to Authentic Ethnic Restaurants and Market in Greater Cleveland, currently in its 8th edition.

In addition to this exciting seminar (exciting to some, but probably not to most) there will be so much more including visits from several of your favorite Food Stars (Michael Symon, Anne Burrell, Guy Fieri, Alton Brown and more). Tasting pavillons, food related seminars, product sampling, kitchen equiptment showcases and so so much more…a foodies dream essentially.
