From our organizers:

Food Writing Forum: Opportunities and Challenges in a Digital Age

The food writing craft is in transition from the traditional world of magazines, newspapers, and cookbooks in print, to the digital world of food blogs, digital books, websites, online restaurant reviewing, memoirs, recipes, food photography and the influence of social networks. If observers and technologists are to be believed, many more changes are soon to come. Top food writers will examine the positive and negative food writing trends in the digital age.

*PLEASE NOTE that your ticket includes admission to both days.
