Bite 'n' Write is the first UK food bloggers conference to be held outside London and is taking place on Saturday 19th November 2011 at The Custard Factory in Birmingham…more to the point I am going (yay!). I’m excited to be finally meeting some of my long time blogging friends and the programme for the day looks useful and informative (the goody bag will be an added bonus).
Here is a sneaky peak at the day (please note some elements may change).
10:40am–11:00am Welcome speech (and short speech from Action Against Hunger)
11:00am–12:00noon Food Photography workshop by Craig Fraser from FraserShot
12:00am–1:00pm Indian Banquet Lunch provided by Bipins
1:15pm–1:45pm Promoting your blog using Social Media and SEO by Judith Lewis
1:50pm –2:20pm Finding your blogging voice by Jeanne Horak from Cooksister
2:00pm–2:45pm Cooking demo by Craig McKnight from WeGrowOurOwn/ Chocolate Tasting by Artisan du Chocolat

3:00pm–3:30pm Recipe Developing and Food Allergies by Charlotte Pike from GoFreeFoods
3:35pm–4:15pm WordPress workshop by James Bolton from Derezzed Media
4:15pm–4:45pm Video Blogging by Ben Frazer from Cupcake Artisan
4:45pm–5:00pm Thank you speech
I’m particularly looking forward to the photography workshop by Craig Fraser, as this is an area that I know I need to improve. I’m also looking forward to the talk on ‘Finding Your Blogging Voice’ from Jeanne. Her blog CookSister! was one of the first blogs I read and ultimately inspired me to set up Jam and Clotted Cream.
A few of us will be making our way to Jamie’s Italian after the conference for some food and drinks and I’m hoping there will be time to visit Birmingham’s Christmas Market.
There are still tickets available, either for the full day or half day – it would be great to see as many of you as possible. If you are going let me know!
