August 8-10, 2022: The theme of 2022’s Wine Writers’ Symposium is The Changing Landscape of Wine Media. Over the course of three half days of keynotes, panels, and roundtables, we will explore topics essential to today’s wine writer. Creative versus technical writing will be considered, as will the fine art of separating the story from the subject. Practical skills such as conducting interviews and interpreting data will be discussed. And an overview of the increasingly complex publishing landscape will be presented. Furthermore, as classic full-time wine writing jobs are harder to come by than ever, monetization and ethics will be major subjects. Our hope is that attendees will walk away from 2022’s Symposium with fresh skills, a deeper understanding of the wine writing industry, and a greater network; we also hope that writers will have further insights on ways to support themselves and how to successfully navigate the ethical complexities of balancing wine writing with side hustles and other wine industry gigs.
