M.F.K. Fisher states in her introduction to The Gastronomical Me, that “there is a communion of more than our bodies when bread is broken and wine drunk.” “And that is my answer,” she continues, “when people ask me: Why do you write about hunger, and not wars or love?”
In this introductory workshop, Freda Love Smith will help participants to explore food memoir as a means to access memory, communicate identity, and express emotion. Through mini-lectures, discussion, and writing exercises, participants will generate ideas for personal food essays.
