Sharpen your writing skills and hone your food and taste knowledge in this compact short course run by the Centre for New Writing at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS). Now in its third offering, the course comprises an introduction to a range of food writing styles and sub genres along with exercises to enhance your skills as a food writer and critic. In practical sessions, using Max Lake’s organoleptic principles, learn how to connect with your own sense of taste to differentiate and communicate subtleties in flavour and sensation.
Using a range of international and Australian texts you will discuss and analyse food history, the place of food and food writing in society, and implications for politics and policy. Applying critical writing skills, you will construct your own pieces for publication on the course blog, ranging from commentary to food and restaurant reviews.
The course is led by John Newton, food journalist and editor of the Sydney Eats Restaurant Guide. Note: this is not an online or distance learning course. You’ll need to be able to attend the Broadway Campus at UTS in Sydney for all classes.
