Food and travel writing: I’ll go if Hugo

Maybe you’ve been wondering how I managed to turn a longstanding career as a waitress into one in which I get paid to eat, drink and write about food and restaurants, and perhaps you’d like to jettison your job and do the same. Have you ever dreamed of turning a travel experience into a photo-filled spread in Conde Nast Traveler, considered writing food and travel stories for a local newspaper or magazine, or envisioned your byline in the glossy pages of Saveur, Bon Appetit or Gourmet? Chances are you can’t afford a trip to Tuscany where you’ll travel with a professional writing instructor willing to show-and-tell you how it’s done, but I’ll bet you you can swing seven bucks to come listen to him (and me) discuss that very subject.

Monday, October 20, from 7 to 9 p.m., I’ll be at the Richard Hugo House on Capitol Hill with author, journalist and writing instructor Nicholas O’Connell. As part of the literary center’s InPrint series, we’ll be talking about food and travel writing, offering advice and answering questions.

And, listen up. If you come, and you don’t introduce yourself, I’ll be very disappointed so make sure to say hello before or after the event, OK?
