The Anoka-Ramsey Community College English Department is hosting a Careers in Writing panel, Thursday Feb. 23, 2 to 3 pm, Coon Rapids Campus, Rm B208. Panelists will include Sarah Kieffer and Emily Weiss. The event is free and open to the public.
Sarah Kieffer is the voice behind the Saveur award–winning The Vanilla Bean Blog. She is a self-taught baker who worked in professional bakeries and coffee shops before making the decision to become a home baker after her two children were born. Kieffer’s first cookbook, The Vanilla Bean Baking Book, is available now through Avery.
Emily Weiss is the former dining critic for City Pages, the Twin Cities' largest alternative weekly paper. She has also contributed food and beer-focused articles to Draft Magazine and The Growler as well as entertainment pieces to online outlets including Hairpin, The Onion's A.V. Club, and Twin Cities Daily Planet. Weiss currently works at CEB Iconoculture as a senior research analyst to identify, research, write and present about food and beverage trends as they relate to the lives of American consumers.
The Careers in Writing panel is an excellent chance for students to learn about career opportunities that utilize writing skills. Past speakers have included Star Tribune travel editor, Kerri Westenberg; Star Tribune book editor, Laurie Hertzel; and Star Tribune music critic, Jon Bream.
“Anoka-Ramsey Community College is a center for literary arts education in the northern suburbs, featuring two degrees in Creative Writing and one in literature,” said Melody Heide, the event’s organizer and Anoka-Ramsey English Faculty member. “This panel is a great way to learn about various career fields that need strong writers. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with people working in the field and to hear first-hand how important it is to be a good, clear writer.”
