The theme of 2022’s Wine Writers’ Symposium: The Changing Landscape of Wine Media.

Over the course of three half days of keynotes, panels, and roundtables, we explored topics essential to today’s wine writer. Creative versus technical writing were considered, as was the fine art of separating the story from the subject. Practical skills such as conducting interviews and interpreting data were discussed. And an overview of the increasingly complex publishing landscape was presented. Furthermore, as classic full-time wine writing jobs are harder to come by than ever, monetization and ethics were featured as major subjects.

The aim of 2022’s Symposium was for attendees to walk away with fresh skills, a deeper understanding of the wine writing industry, and a greater network, as well as further insights on ways to support themselves and how to successfully navigate the ethical complexities of balancing wine writing with other pursuits.
