The School of the New American Farmstead at Sterling College is offering a new session of its popular course, Food Writing: Intersections Between Place, Identity, and Cuisine. Participants will explore these connections within the context of their own experiences in the pastoral setting of the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.

In this July 22-28 workshop led by Lynne Christy Anderson, author of “Breaking Bread: Recipes and Stories from Immigrant Kitchens,” the culture and rituals connected to farming, food-craft and eating will be considered. Guest authors Rowan Jacobson, Soleil Ho and Kristin Kimball will be leading breakout sessions in their area of expertise and be available to meet with students individually. Each author will offer a community talk in the evening highlighting recent works.

“A variety of readings will serve as models for personal writing, and students will examine the way writers use language to evoke stories about food,” said Heather Jerrett, Director of Continuing Education. “Participants will write daily, and frequent workshopping will provide writers with important strategies for revision.”

The School of the New American Farmstead (SNAF) is Sterling College’s continuing education program, which presents agrarians, culinarians, entrepreneurs and craftspeople ways to hone valuable skills while adhering to the College’s principles of environmental stewardship and experiential learning.
