Power of pen - Food writing seminar and workshop in Davao City

Food has gone beyond the limitations of our palate and plates. More than a physiological need, it has become a destination for many, a propelling factor for tourism, and a representation of our culture and history.

How do we communicate our culinary experience in a literary sense? What are the different ways to write a credible critique on food? As practitioners and professionals in the hospitality businesses, what are the various styles of writing which we can use in our respective fields? These are among the questions we aim to answer in Power of Pen 8: Mindanao Culinary Culture-Research and Writing Basics.

This May 19, 2018, five prominent food writers, researchers, and culinary experts will set foot on Ateneo De Davao University in Mindanao to share their journeys, insights, and lessons on Food Writing and Research.

In this seminar and workshop, aspiring food writers, marketing professionals, and social media influencers will be informed and equipped with the essential key points and instructions on crafting food reviews with informative, entertaining, and flavorful content with the guidance of Ms. Michaela Fenix, an editor and writer for Philippine Daily Inquirer and Ms. Margaux Salcedo, a columnist from the same national newspaper. As they will speak about Food Knowledge & The Importance of Research for Food Stories and Ideas, Feature Writing, and writing Restaurant Reviews. Furthermore, they will also be discussing how to produce a readable and evocative work in order to successfully market it to its target readers.

Our resource speakers Chef Datu Shariff Pendatun III, Dr. Macario Tiu, and Ms. Lolita Lacuesta, will take on an encompassing discussion on Mindanaoan cuisine, its history and socio-­­cultural narratives and how we can utilize its richness strengths to encourage research, promotion, and preservation of our culture through writing. Topics for this segment are as follows: A Study on the Cuisine of Muslim Mindanao (Chef Datu Shariff Pendatun III), Documenting The Recipes of The Ten Tribes of Davao (Dr. Macario Tiu), and The Davao We Know: Writing to Record Socio-­­Cultural History (Ms. Lolita Lacuesta).

Furthermore to these scholarly inquiries on culture and research, the Power of Pen will also address practical techniques to apply food writing specifically to effectively market restaurant offerings, hotel promotions, and travel pitches to both local and foreign spectators. To add excitement and fun, everyone will also be given a chance to write their personal experiences adapting to various scenarios through a writing workshop before the end of the program.

Join the Power of Pen this May 19, 2018 at the Training Room, 8F, Community Center of the First Companion, Ateneo De Davao University, E Jacinto St., Davao City from 9AM to 5PM and take delight in its relishing ideas and discussions on both literary gastronomic explorations.
