Class description

This writing workshop will use the delicious, delightful, and nourishing subject of food to explore our inner worlds. Through writing about food we will access deep memories, connect to our childhoods, examine our heritage, and reflect on our personal growth.

Food connects us to landscapes, to history, and to each other. This generative writing retreat will examine the craft of writing about food, highlighting the tools needed to create stellar food writing. We will explore the essential components of using sensory details to inform and inspire.

With food as our entry point, we connect to meaning in our lives, explore how that meaning has changed over time, and understand where our future selves are going. You will create short personal narratives to find clarity, reinvigorate your creativity, and indulge your appetite for transformation!

THREE THINGS RETREAT GUESTS WILL WALK AWAY WITH UPON RETREAT COMPLETION:

  • Short memoir piece about food
  • Renewed sense of creativity in cooking and writing
  • A nourished connection to the self
