How to Become a Successful Food Writer
Diversify your portfolio. If your plan is to become a full-time food writer/critic, then have something substantial to show editors. Include as many articles as you can in your portfolio, which must include your write-ups on a wide range of articles - from chefs, food festivals, wine, restaurants to food product launches, customer service and so on.
Use current social media trends to your advantage by creating Facebook pages, Twitter profiles, Pinterest boards, or well maintained blogs/websites. Use these social networking sites to garner a following. Every editor likes an enterprising food writer who takes his or her passion beyond just appreciating good food.
