From the coronavirus pandemic to the Beirut blasts to the U.S. elections, this year has been intense. AANM wants to document your 2020 story, and help you tell it. It could be a personal essay about dealing with lockdown, a poem about Lebanon, perhaps a recipe for a dish that gave you comfort, or something else.
This November, artist-in-residence Zahir Janmohamed will give three online interactive writing workshops to help you complete your first draft. The first will focus on personal essay writing, the second on poetry and visual storytelling, and the final one on food writing! Each workshop will feature guest speakers from the metro Detroit area who are experts in their field. The workshops will conclude with an online public reading on Monday, Nov. 30 in which participants will be invited to share their work.
Online via Zoom
Free with RSVP
Learn about the basics of food writing, from writing about a restaurant you love, to telling a story about your life using your favorite dish. Facilitator Zahir Janmohamed will be joined by some of metro Detroit’s most accomplished food journalists discussing how they approach their craft.
