Bite ‘n’ Write is an event for food bloggers to meet, learn new
skills and build up their network. We don’t believe that you have to
blog in a certain way, but we do believe that we can help you find your
blogging voice by improving your skills and build up a supporting
network. The event supports Action Against Hunger’s “Love Food Give
Food” campaign.

Remember to support your local food producers!
