Erin Elizabeth Smith, poet, editor, publisher, teacher, shows the ingredients of great food writing that stimulates the senses, illuminates regional culture, and advances fine writing.  


Erin says: "Southern food has always been more than fried chicken and biscuits—it’s the story of our grandmother’s hands, a lyric of hardship, the rush of the first summer tomato reddening on the vine."


This multi-genre workshop will focus on how Southern food culture can help to inform our stories, poetry, and memoirs. Participants will discuss ways to incorporate elements of the Southern history and mythos of our cuisine into their work. The workshop also includes a cooking demo as well as a collection of recipes from across the South to take home with you.
