Especially in foodie-haven Singapore, food writing is everywhere – in magazines, newspapers and most prevalently on the world wide web. If you are an aspiring food blogger or simply a foodie looking for extra sources of income to supplement your guilty indulgences through writing, this is the book for you.
Will Write for Food is based on the author Dianne Jacob's own experiences as a blogger, cookbook author, freelance writer and former magazine editor. The comprehensive book covers, in individual chapters, several popular aspects of food writing, including how to become a freelance food writer, on starting with your own cookbook, and getting published with a food blog.
And for those researching the world of food writers, the book further illustrates with interviews with 75 of the world's most successful and award-winning food writers, literary agents, cookbook editors and recipe developers such as Molly O'Neill and Jeffrey Steingarten, on top of a foreword by David Lebovitz. Praise for Will Write for Food
“Will Write for Food is a concise, illustrative and eminently useful guide to the nuts and bolts of professional food writing. Dianne Jacob gets right to the heart of what it takes not just to write—but to write well— about food. And she’s managed to wrangle a remarkable group of veterans to share their experiences and examples.” – Anthony Bourdain, author of the New York Times bestseller Kitchen Confidential
