The world is moving at an ever faster pace, in large part thanks to the explosion of information on the Internet and the impact of the digital technology. As a result, culinary professionals in every market have to now struggle with the new task of writing about their profession as well as being part of it.
Many chefs, who spent a lifetime mastering the skills of the kitchen, are extremely uncomfortable with this contemporary trend. However, where there's a need, there's an answer, thanks in large part to the insight of creative companies, such as Amazon, that deal daily with writers, editors AND the new world of digital publications.
These state-of-the-art firms are most easily located at conferences, saving the attendees both time and money as the availability of the information offered is focused and concentrated.
The Northwest Bookfest is one such conference, where the topics range from an exploration of Amazon Kindle's Direct Publishing programs by Thomas Kephart to understanding how to manage a writing project using Evernote by Viv Ilo E Veith. Other workshops explain how to conduct a successful interview as well as how to protect one’s legal rights in the digital world.
And the list goes on and on. ThisNovember 2-3 Conference is just another reason why many creative culinary professionals enjoy calling the Northwest home. If creativity is about being ready to learn new skills, here’s your chance. See you there!
