I am so thrilled to report that this past Sunday, Printers Row, a literary journal owned by the Chicago Tribune, ran a story on seven notable food writers to watch. The story was penned by the super talented Bill Daley and features several writers including me! I am honored to be in the same company and Virginia Willis (I know, wow) and the brilliant Jess Tompson. (The story is NOT online yet. I am hoping to get a print copy soon!!). The seven writers are: Monica Bhide, Dave Bridges, Michael Procopio, Leela Punyaratabandhu, Jess Thomson, Michael W. Twitty, Virginia Willis
Recipes from 7 food writers on downloadable “cards.” interviewed them for Bill Daley’s piece in the Printers Row Journal: “Dishing about food writing: Out of a crowded field, seven writers you should know.”
Several of the writers featured are scheduled to chat online with Bill Daley this coming Thursday and hope you all will join us. Included will be Monica Bhide, David Bridges, Michael Procopio, Michael W. Twitty, Virginia Willis. And two others interviewed in the story, literary agent and publicist Lisa Ekus and David Leite of Leite’s Culinaria. Looking forward to a lively chat – and hope you’ll join in the discussion!
Here is some information on the Tweet chat: “The chat will take place atnoon on April 5. Follow along by going to tweetchat.com, signing in, and entering the hashtag #PRJChat. The food writers will be discussing cooking, writing and the future of food journalism.”
