Food bloggers love this book by Dianne Jacob: “Will Write for Food”.

“Will Write for Food” is a complete guide to writing cookbooks, blogs, memoir, recipes, and more. It covers exactly what food writing is, delves into the different types of food writing, has insight from numerous well known food writers and food bloggers, and includes several writing exercises; all wrapped up into twelve distinct chapters.

The third edition chapters are as follows:

If you are willing to spend the money, this is a great book for non food bloggers as well. You can apply many of the lessons and ideas to any type of niche. For instance, chapter four includes overall themes and ideas for writing blog posts such as:

  • Start a conversation.
