The Pen and the Lens: A Winning Combination


Maine Media Workshops announces On the Plate: Food Writing and Photography, a five-day winter workshop in beautiful Rockport, Maine. Join award-winning food writer Nancy Harmon Jenkins and photographer Sally Pasley Vargas to explore written words and photographed images.



When? January 21 – 25, 2019

Where? Beautiful Nina June restaurant, overlooking Rockport harbor, all ours for a week, including kitchen, sunny dining room, and long tables for crafting tales and discussing issues.

Why? Because both beginners and accomplished food writers know that food memories and sensory images spark interest in any story, and that photos greatly augment the appeal for your readers. How to get just the right image, however, can be tricky.

Whether you’re using an iPhone7 or a top-ranked DSLR, with Sally and Nancy’s guidance, you’ll boost your competence and confidence, learning to write well at the same time that you learn to style and photograph food images to go with blog posts, magazine articles, or book-length texts.
