Food Writing Workshop in Los Angeles

Hopefully this is useful not just for LA foodbloggers but all o'you Californians:

UCLA Extension is offering a one-day food writing workshop this fall, featuring a couple of my favorite Los Angeles food journalists, Russ Parsons and Evan Kleiman. It's on Nov. 4 from 9:30 to 5 and costs $130. They're only taking 50 students, so you'll have to sign up quickly (you can register on the Extension website). Here are the details from the course catalog:

In this workshop, food writers and editors provide an overview of the techniques for turning a food-related experience or recipe idea into sellable articles for magazines and newspapers. Panelists share insights into such different disciplines as cookbook production and restaurant reviewing. Guest speakers include Elizabeth Evans, food critic, Orange County Register; Stephen Hamilton, Stephen Hamilton Photographics Inc.; Brad A. Johnson, National Food and Travel Editor, Modern Luxury magazines; Evan Kleiman, owner, Angeli Caffe, KCRW radio host, cookbook author; Russ Parsons, food columnist, Los Angeles Times; Nancy Ross Ryan, Fresh Food Writing; and Pamela J. Wischkaemper, food consultant/public relations.

I'm making the trek from SF... and using it as an excuse for a long weekend of food exploration. If anyone else is going to the class, I'd love to meet you and say hello.

I so wanted to do this ... but neither time nor $$$ permit. I just couldn't justify it for the sake of my food blog, but I'm jealous of those who go! I hope to read some reports. :)
