If you’ve always dreamed about sharing your observations about food and travel with a wider audience, this course is for you. In this informal workshop, well-known Vancouver journalist Don Genova introduces you to the exciting world of writing about food and travel as he explains how the freelance writing process works and offers tips on generating ideas and expressing them in query letters to editors. You also learn about restaurant reviewing, cookbook and recipe writing, and making your travel story stand out from all the others. By the end of the course, you should have a saleable query letter to send out and the first draft of a story, with feedback on your writing and story structure.
