The Readable Feast (thereadablefeast.com) is excited to host A Taste of Boston Food Writing along with co-sponsors, Santé Magazine (isantemagazine.com), and Pangyrus Literary Magazine (pangyrus.com). This session will celebrate the one thing every person on the planet has in common: food. While our panel of writers share short essays, attendees will sample morsels to add a tasty dimension to the stories. Anyone inspired to write their own story can submit to Pangyrus Literary Magazine for their first-ever food-writing contest.
