Southern Food Writing Conference Kicks Off BiscuitFest in Knoxville

Posted By on Thu, May 10, 2012 at 5:43 AM

Immerse yourself in a weekend of Southernness, food and writing at the inaugural Southern Food Writing Conference in Knoxville May 17 and 18.

The seminar is just one part of the International Biscuit Festival, also in Knoxville, beginning this Wednesday, May 16.

Current or aspiring food writers can learn from the legends at the conference, including Times-Picayune restaurant reviewer Brett Anderson, Southern Food author (and journalist) John Egerton; editor Ronni Lundy; Southern cookbook authors Nathalie Dupree, Elizabeth Sims, Barbara Swell, Sheri Castle, and the FoodBlogSouth people. Sessions cover culinary research, publisher's perspective, culture and breaking into writing.

Dinner at the luxurious Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tenn., is included in the ticket, and you can buy an add-on dinner with Alton Brown.

There is, of course, a biscuit session, and if you can't get enough, there's a whole biscuit festival right outside the seminar doors the next day.

Check out the writing conference schedule here, and register here.
