Two Free Blogging Workshops at Fenns Quay for Cork Food Week

I was honored when Kate Lawlor of Fenn’s Quay asked me to co-lead two workshops as part of Cork Food Week. She has something planned every evening next week! I’ll be there on Tuesday and Thursday with Kate.

We will begin each workshop with a slide overview of the topics we’ll discuss then go through those, welcoming questions every step of the evenings. Practical trips, approaches, and advice will be shared specific to attendees’ blogging focuses. These evenings are geared toward food bloggers but all principles can be applied to craft and knitting bloggers’ work as well.
