ONLINE Opinion Series – A Feast of all the Senses: Writing the Restaurant Review
Admit it. There’s a restaurant critic inside you dying to get out. It’s not that you don’t enjoy the eating aspect of going to restaurants. But the talking about the experience—the delicious, the tepid, the terrifying (yes, there was a fly in the soup, and it was not intentional)—is usually even better than the experience. Awesome. Let’s learn how to turn that talking into writing, so that other foodies listen. Perfect for compulsive Yelp reviewers, aspiring bloggers, and foodies with a voracious appetite for words.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
