Class Description

Around the kitchen table is where real conversations happen. There, discussions are honest or not, humorous, combative, or emotional. They provide inspiration for our writing, and present the ideal setting to place our characters to converse. As a way to access these memories or create a compelling scene, beginning your draft with food is a delicious way to enter your imagination and discover the motivations of your characters: how they live and eat. In this seminar we will use tasty prompts, view a couple of tense dining scenes from films, and read notable essays from Best American Food Writing issues that will make you hungry to write your own scenes, essays, and stories. For writers of fiction and nonfiction of all levels

Who Should Register?

Write Down the Street has a special focus on making the creative writing workshop more accessible to those who face challenges due to cost, language skills, lack of access to transportation, and other barriers. We believe that all voices must be spotlighted with the range and fullness they deserve.

These programs are offered tuition-free thanks to the support of generous donors who are committed to our mission of ensuring all voices are heard.
