If you’re considering publishing a cookbook, or you work in the food and wine industry and need to communicate with editors, or you’re already a food writer, join colleagues at the fourth Okanagan Food and Wine Writers Workshop in Kelowna Apr. 28 to May 1.

Not only will delegates learn about what editors look for, they’ll also have a chance to sample local fare created by renowned local chefs and wines from local wineries, notes organizer Jennifer Cockrall-King, author of Food and the City: Urban Agriculture and the New Food Revolution.

So far, writers from Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. have registered for the conference, but there are still some spaces, she says. The event is at the Delta Grand Resort.

“I try to strike a balance between our workshops, designed to help writers bring their careers to the next level, and giving them a taste of the extraordinary richness of the Kelowna culinary and wine scene,” she explains.

As well as the learning and tasting opportunities, writers find they meet fellow food communicators and network with others in the industry during the conference, she adds.
