I'm studying journalism at university and I love food, theatre and film.

The Katherine Susannah Pritchard Foundation Inc have a long history of teaching and education for writers and aspiring writers.

They aim at practical, experience-based tutorials with professionals - writers, editors and publishers.

Coming up in September is a workshop with a professional food writer - Dr Douglas Sutherland-Bruce, one of the Senior Writers here at Weekend Notes.

Sutherland-Bruce has been writing food and restaurant reviews since 1986. He has written for the Echo, the Hills Gazette, Destinations (the in-flight magazine for Skywest Airlines), ArtsWest magazine, the Swan Magazine and the Albany Weekender as well as serving as a Gold Plate Judge, so he really knows his stuff.

Everyone eats, a staggering number of people post photographs of their meals on line in social media to general acclaim. Most diners enjoy talking about or writing about memorable meals. Urban Spoon, Yelp and other web-based blogs are fantastically popular and writers must inevitably wonder how to turn this hobby into a paying job.

In the three hour workshop Sutherland-Bruce will talk about that, what to focus on and how to improve your writing, libel laws in Australia, writing to order and the ethics of criticism.

In the interests of full disclosure Douglas is a friend of mine and has urged me to write and helped me enormously. I would not be writing for Weekend Notes without his encouragement and help. He is also a very witty and engaging speaker.

The workshop will be held at Katherine's Place, 11 Old York Road, Greenmount. The workshop costs $30 for members, $45 for non-members and runs from 1pm to 4pm on Saturday 20th September.
