Food: Bigger than the page

A creative writing workshop on food, memory, and the senses

  • Creative Studio, V&A South Kensington

  • Tickets cost £50.00

Past Event

This workshop explores new ways of thinking about food as inspiration for our writing. We’ll investigate how food activates all the senses, and we’ll also consider its symbolic powers and collective energies. We’ll talk about food writing as a literary genre, and look at the wider uses of food in fiction and poetry. And most of all we’ll write: cooking up memories, recycling recipes as poems, and harvesting stories from the compost of our desires.

Andrew Wille is an editor, writer and teacher with an interest in mindful and intuitive techniques in writing.
