“From Chinese Dumplings to The New Yorker: the Making of an Accidental Science Journalist”
Nicola Twilley is a frequent contributor to The New Yorker magazine and a co-host of Gastropod, an award-winning podcast about the science and history of food. She will draw on her own experiences to talk about how to pitch and report long form narrative stories and why food is such a rich topic for storytelling. She was 2013 recipient of the UC Berkeley-11th Hour Food and Farming Journalism Fellowship.
The lunchtime talk will be followed by a Q & A hosted by Malia Wollan, the fellowship’s director.
