Are you a food blogger or an aspiring food blogger who wants to know and learn more about food, photography and writing? Eat,Write, Retreat is the event for you! On the first weekend of June, the Sonesta Hotel will host a slew of bloggers for a weekend full of workshops, panels, sessions and events. It is an all inclusive weekend with planned dining events, networking and even some breaks for visiting with other bloggers.
I will be attending for the first time and even though I do not know the whole experience, I know I really wanted to be at the even last year, but with a new baby, it was not quite possible. This year, I am excited to see what all I gain from my experience, especially since writing and creating on my website has been a little more exciting and demanding. I’m especially interested in attending the session called “Pitch to the Pros” which is a one-on-one face time with sponsors that align with my website.
Want to take a peek into the retreat schedule? The schedule could change but this is roughly what it looks like now:
Friday, June 6, 2014
Saturday, June 7, 2014
Sunday, June 8, 2014
2. Create and publish a blog post featuring an original watermelon recipe by May 19, 2014.

4. Submit the link to your post here.
5. You’ll also be able to choose whether you’d like to be considered for the live demos, or simply be entered to win our random drawing for a Calphalon Contemporary Cookware set.
Entries will be judged on creativity, originality, and how well the recipe translates to a 2-3 minute video segment. Winners of prize pack from Calphalon will be selected randomly from all eligible entries. There is no requirement to participate in the live training at Eat Write Retreat to enter to win the Calphalon prize pack with your watermelon post.
Intimidated by the price of the retreat? Well, there is an option to pay over 6 months through PayPal so don’t let the price prevent you from attending.
