Eat Your Words by Le Cordon Bleu at MFWF 2018
Budding food writers went behind the scenes to report on events at the recent Melbourne Food & Wine Festival (MFWF).
An excited group of aspiring food journalists joined us in Melbourne for an immersive 2-day Food Writing for Media Workshop Eat your Words by Le Cordon Bleu. Students entered the world of gastronomic journalism, going behind the scenes at Melbourne Food & Wine Festival, with their articles published on MFWF's website.
Designed for the budding food writer, the course was presented by Food and Travel Journalist Justin Bergman who shared his insights on how to develop ideas to impress food editors and craft compelling stories for publication. Covering events at the MFWF, students were thrilled to have their stories published online after receiving feedback from a seasoned editor. Attendees were delighted to take part in a Q & A session with Former Editor of Lucky Peach, Chris Ying who shared insider tips on current and emerging food trends, and discussed what constitutes good food journalism.
A collection of our engaging student articles written during the workshop are published on the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival website: http://www.melbournefoodandwine.com.au/read-watch/latest-news/
