Kneading Words: Express Your Grain-to-Bread Mojo Through Writing | Amy Halloran & BREAD Magazine

What do you want to say about your work with grains? Flour, baking, and bread captivate, inspire, and challenge us in meaningful ways, but communicating their importance and our aspirations to customers and friends is often tough.

This discussion and a series of writing exercises with three bread-focused writers will help you explore your motivations and define your commitment to bread. We will help you find your "element" or "flow" in the path from grain to bread, discover your motto, and articulate the engagement you find in the baking process. 

Join us for a working lunch immediately following the session to collaborate on a global bread manifesto.
