Paulette Licitra, publisher of semi-annual food journal Alimentum, hosts a free food-writing workshop Sunday, June 7 at Whole Foods in Green Hills.
Alimentum, which recently moved its headquarters to Nashville from New York City, showcases poetry and prose, fiction and non-fiction, inspired by all things culinary. Flipping through the pages of the summer 2009 issue, readers may recognize contributors Mark Kurlansky, author of Salt: A World's History and The Cod's Tale; Clotilde Dusoulier, author and founder of food blog "Chocolate & Zuchini;" and Gaylord Brewer, poet and professor of English at Middle Tennessee State University.
If you're looking to fine-tune your own food-flavored writing skills, or you're just looking for free coffee and pastries, bring yourself and your inner Ruth Reichl to Whole Foods from 2 to 4 p.m. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 440-5100. The last workshop was packed, so it's a good idea to reserve a spot.
