Hawaiian pizza, campfire-toasted marshmallows, the dusty old crackers at the back of the cupboard you’d only eat if somebody paid you: this workshop is about food in all its forms. Following examples from some of the most delicious (and not-so-delicious) food in fiction, we’ll talk about why food matters so much, and how it can help us tell the stories we most want to tell.
