Irish Food Writers’ Guild
I am proud and honoured to announce that I was elected Chair of the Irish Food Writers’ Guild earlier this week.
I’m looking forward to working with Secretary Kate Ryan (Flavour.ie), Treasurer Katia Valadeau (ProperFood.ie), President Georgina Campbell of Georgina Campbell’s Ireland, outgoing Chair Kristin Jensen (who is currently setting up the very exciting Blasta Books project) and all the members of the Irish Food Writers’ Guild over the next three years in moving forward with the Guild’s aim to be a voice for better eating.
I’m fortunate to have spent the last three years working as Guild Secretary alonside Chair Kristin Jensen. Every year has brought new challenges but none more so than the last 13 months, an incredibly difficult time for freelance journalists and food writers. As a Guild, we could have put everything on hold but instead we pushed forward with redeveloping the Guild website, holding our meetings online and working at nurturing, encouraging and supporting this wonderful community of food-obsessed individuals.
Something that I’m incredibly proud of is the fact that we managed to vote for our 2021 IFWG Food Awards and the very worthy winners – at a very difficult time for them – will be announced next week on Thursday 15 April. Watch out for them – there’s a lot of good eating there!
