Louise Jaques and Kylie Maslen present a talk/workshop about writing about food. A hybrid fiction/non-fiction experiment with delicious results. Chow down while turning descriptions of food in a restaurant review into a poem or write a poem where you’re only allowed to describe things as related to foods, or compose a flash fiction from the point of view of a food.
