Urban Harvest: Food Writing Workshop with Julia O’Malley
This event has ended. It was scheduled for 1/11/2020.
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 11Reynolds Classroom
Join journalist, teacher and editor Julia O’Malley to explore how an important recipe can lead you into your personal history and identity. Participants sample several styles of food memoir before diving into their own stories, using a recipe they bring with them as a prompt. This class is open to anyone with an interest in food or writing — no previous experience in journalism or food-writing is required. Come with a recipe (original recipe card or cookbook preferred), a favorite pen and a notebook. Julia O’Malley writes and edits for the Anchorage Daily News and has written about food for The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, Eater and Edible Alaska. She collaborated with the Anchorage Museum on its recently published book about Alaska foodways, "The Cupcake and the Whale," with the University of Washington Press. A short break will be provided for lunch – food available for purchase from Muse or you may bring a lunch. $50, members receive a 10% discount. Space is limited; registration required.
