I just wanted to start a thread to help Kathy find her way. Maybe I'll post some calls in here. I know of quite a few markets who are always looking for Foodies.

Once this place has a Room Moderator or two in place, we'll have to see about a permanent Sticky for Foodie Markets. Great idea, Kevin.

I am so excited about this. I am a big foodie, but it always seemed to be hard to break into the market unless you were chef-trained. This is gonna be fun!

Gastronomica welcomes articles from any field touching on the history, production, uses, and depictions of food. In addition to research articles, we will consider prose, poetry, original artwork, photographs, and cartoons, as well as occasional pieces that deal with food.

This is a great magazine for those quirky food pieces that don't seem to fit anywhere else.

Fantastic forum idea! I think I'll be hanging out here quite a bit.

If you're looking for a food writing conference, check this one out. I've been to it twice and had a great time. Food writers are seriously nice people! I even met one of my idols: Lynne Rosetto Kasper. :fan girl scream:
