Updated: Oct 18, 2021
Do you want to be a food writer? Do you think you have what it takes to have your food stories published in magazines or newspapers? Or, perhaps you’re an instagrammer or blogger keen to polish your food writing skills?
In this episode of ExtraVirgin Food and Travel Podcast, Natascha Mirosch talks to Barbara Sweeney, a veteran food writer, former food guide editor, writing teacher and organiser of Australia’s only food writing festival, 'Food & Words.'
We discuss everything from how to pitch to an editor, how to be a better writer, restaurant reviewing and other food writing genres, and even what you might expect to be paid as a professional freelance food writer.
If you're serious about wanting to be part of the wonderful world of food writing, you'll want to grab a pen and paper, or have your finger poised at the keyboard for note-taking, as Barbara generously shares all the tips and tricks she's learned along the way.
I hope you enjoy this episode.
