It’s generally a good rule for wine writers never to write about writing about wine. It’s something we find interesting (after all, it’s our career), but which is terribly boring and in-house for most readers, who really don’t care about the people and details that mean so much to us.
But, occasionally, I break this rule. And this week, as one of the faculty at the Professional Wine Writers’ Symposium, I’m being asked to talk about writing about wine. So I thought I’d gather some of my blog posts on the subject into one place. [Partly, this is revision for me, too!]
- Advice for young winewriters – things I wish I’d been told when I started out
- Advice to emerging wine writers: be known for something but be careful
- Unwritten rules for wine writers: in short, be a nice human
- How to succeed as a wine writer by writing boring wine articles – this is meant to be humorous
- Careers advice – from me?
