WHAT IS THE LONGHOUSE FOOD SCHOLARS PROGRAM

The LongHouse Food Scholars Program is a residential, immersion experience that is designed to give the skills for researching, reporting, and creating food stories for print, radio, and television.

Under the tutelage of working media professionals, scholars create multimedia content—some of which may premier at LongHouse Food Revival (our yearly gathering of food media producers, editors, and  writers) or as part of the annual LongHouse online journal.

The Food Scholars Program is structured like a newsroom, intense and fast-paced, with distinct deadlines and deliverables. Working with masters of their craft, scholars shoot and edit mini-documentaries and slide-shows, conduct interviews, gather oral histories, and create online content.

This food media “boot camp” includes daily writing exercises, weekly specialty seminars in recipe testing, studio and location food photography, basic culinary skills, weekly “salon” dinners with food authors, professors and intellectuals, and professional mentoring sessions.

In addition, each scholar is responsible for creating a personal, online portfolio—drawing from this work as well as any additional work he or she may have.

Located in a tiny hamlet in upstate New York, the LongHouse Food Scholars Program offers two different study opportunities. Approx. 10 scholars will be selected per session. Here is the direct weblink  http://onebigtable.com/longhouse/scholars/
