Session 1: 
BUILDING A BIGGER TABLE
 

Andrea King Collier, moderator
Panelists: Toni Tipton-Martin, David Leite, Elissa Altman, Michael Twitty, and Francis Lam. Recorded on September 28, 2016.

Panelists discuss how diverse voices may be brought to the food writing table, and how each has made her or his own mark on food writing. They discuss the importance of networking and of leveraging opportunities, as well as how to reach a wide audience amidst a sea of culinary stars, whether writing about the food of one’s own roots or about local and sustainable food. This session aims to generate answers to the pressing question: How can the community of food writers and editors work together to nurture diversity and to create a welcoming, open space for all food storytellers in all forms and formats?

Session 2: 
MAKING FOOD WORK FOR YOU

Andy Schloss, Moderator
Panelists: Dianne Jacob, Sandra Gutierrez, and Monica Bhide. Recorded on September 28, 2016.

Writing about food may be fun and gratifying, but without proper planning and strategizing, it often is not sustainable. A living isn’t built by a cookbook alone—assuming you can get a cookbook deal. Hear from four successful writers about how they have put their food writing to work to earn a living. The panelists talk about their workflow and how they plan for the bottom line.
