This month, I am producing for Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown. It might be the coolest content in the universe.
Planning for November’s trip with Nathalie Dupree to Italy is officially underway. I’m excited to organizing this special trip, and producing a film about our time there. Learn more here.
Over the next two months, I’ll be working with the Roads & Kingdoms digital production team to give the award-winning digital publication a fresh look. R&K is the best of woke travel and food storytelling, so follow along.
I’ve been invited to judge the 2018 IACP: The International Association of Culinary Professionals Food Writing Awards! With past winners like Francis Lam and Hunter Lewis, the awards set a benchmark of excellency, and it’s an honor to participate. I am super excited about the reading material coming my way.
I’m working on a (fully funded!) PhD now to see what happens when you apply the Southern Foodways Alliance model to Southern Africa. Follow along here: http://foodways.co.za/
This fall, I am joining the English department at TFC to teach freshman composition. No one will leave my class without mastering MLA in text citations, full stop!
As a follow up to my visits to the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation, the Hemingway Society asked me to make a contribution to their annual newsletter. At 24 pages, it is much more than a newsletter, and is full of engaging interviews and inspiring ideas. My own thoughts came back to food.
This spring, I am helping the small team at Covey Rise magazine revitalize their social media footprint. Headquartered in Alexander City, Alabama, Covey Rise celebrates the lifestyle of the upland sporting enthusiast and the experience of the hunt through vivid photography and engaging writing. An appropriate capstone experience following my final internships, I will be shaking up the magazine’s Facebook and Twitter accounts as interim digital editor to return the (increased!) social footprint in house.
My Sewanee School of Letters MFA thesis, FULL, has been accepted for publication by LSU Press as part of their Southern Table Series. So glad to be working with LSU!
