Black Women, Food and Publishing

Panelists: Jenné Claiborne, Jerrelle Guy, Tracye McQuirter, Rachel Bolden-Kramer Moderator: Bryant Terry

In a recent article chef, writer, and cultural critic Tunde Wey spelled out why Black women are the future of the food industry. Inspired by Wey’s piece, this panel convenes some extraordinary bloggers, vloggers, activists, and educators who have made a mark in the food world and have recently published cookbooks. This panel will discuss nuts-and-bolts topics such as transitioning from a blog or vlog to writing a book, getting an agent, writing a proposal, writing/testing recipes, and more. We will also dig into bigger themes such as the challenges of navigating an industry dominated by white women as a woman of color, finding your unique voice, self-publishing vs. partnering with a small publisher vs. working with a major publisher, and more. If you are interested in writing a cookbook, building a powerful brand, and learning about the ups and downs of being a black woman in the food industry then this event is for you. A reception featuring wine, hors d’oeuvres, and sweet bites will precede the conversation.
