We had a marvelous time teaching our first food writing class at 18 Reasons in San Francisco. We were the first to offer a class for kids at theirintimate community space in San Francisco's Mission district!

18 Reasons is a non-profit engaging the community through food and art. They offer a year-round calendar of unique wine tastings, art shows, community dinners, food classes and interactive workshops.

In this 2 hour creative writing workshop for 3rd - 5th graders, we used all five senses and plates full of adjectives, metaphors and similes to learn how to write about food. 

We mounted our final piece on special paper, as a love letter to our favorite food.

Here are some photos by the wonderful photographer, Blaire Sneddon!
