Have you been tempted to tell your food story?  Do you follow the food news as closely as some watch MSNBC or CNN? Addicted to Chopped? Active in the food justice movement? An avid reader of cookbooks and food memoirs? If any of these describe your interest in food, consider joining me at Gateway Community College this semester. Our 2020 Food Writing Class at Gateway in New Haven starts 1/23/2020.

For the past six years, I have taught this food writing class in downtown New Haven. Its that time of the year again. I’m working on new materials, lining up guest speakers, thinking of ways to bring people together around writing about food. (Email:  pm@priscillamartel.com for a peek at the syllabus.)

As always, the class is open to Gateway Community College students and anyone who cares to join us. (This class is free for those over 62*.) The only prerequisite is a willingness to write. I am grateful to all of my students, who always bring their curiosity and enthusiasm to class each week.

Food Writing (HSP-I249) will be offered on Wednesday evenings from 5:55 to 8:45 PM starting Wednesday January 22, 2020. It runs for 15 weeks through May. Classes meet at the Gateway Community College Downtown New Haven Campus Room S118. Free parking provided.

Should this be of interest, contact Stephen Fries, Coordinator Hospitality Management Programs at Gateway. Call 203-285-2175 or email Stephen directly at sfries@gwcc.commnet.edu

* For those over 62, Senior Citizen Registration will be on campus on January 17 from 10Am to 12PM in the North building Room 100. Or by contacting Professor Fries.
