_DSC6204LR

So, you want to go to a food blogging conference? Or a food photography or writing workshop? Which one do you go to? What about workshops or other events? I’m compiling this list to make it easier to see what events are available to attend.  This list includes events for food blogging, food writing, food styling, and food photography from around the world that I have come across. If you have clearer/more accurate information, or know of other food blog conferences this year, please contact me so I can update this page.

*Note – I am not associated with these workshops, and I have no ability to register people or add them to wait lists. Please visit the websites of the workshops to contact their respective organizers etc.
