Sharpen your pencils and be ready to learn concrete techniques that will increase the effectiveness of your culinary writing. Nancy Baggett and  David Leite lead this workshop, analyzing elements of the craft like the use of active verbs and the avoidance of passive voice; pruning excess verbiage; optimizing word choice; and employing literary devices like similes, metaphor, hyperbole, and irony. You’ll leave with a diagnostic exercise that will help identify your strengths and sharpen your personal voice.
