Truth be told, we’re a little nervous about giving away this supremely useful volume from seasoned food writer, editor, and coach Dianne Jacob. See, we know if you heed her words of wisdom about breaking into the world of food writing, you’re very likely to be successful, and that means more competition for—well, for people like us. But we suppose we can’t stop you from absorbing some of her vast knowledge on topics like finding your voice, developing a food blog, pitching stories to editors, and writing a cookbook. After all, that’s what a good number of LC staffers have done. We just hope you keep us in mind as you juggle book deals, freelance gigs, and television spots.
Or, um, maybe you don’t want to be a food writer after all. (Hey, it was worth a shot. You know what they say about desperate times.)
