Pitch Us a Story
We’re gearing up for the Fall 2018 installment of F&B: Voices from the Kitchen (our seventh!), and we’re opening up the opportunity for you to enter your idea for a story for our upcoming show!
Next Show | Thursday, November 8, 2018
Deadline for Story Submission | Tuesday, July 10, 2018
Theme of Fall 2018 Installment | "Matriarchy"
La Cocina’s kitchen is 97% womyn of color. It’s a pretty special place. On a daily basis, we are surrounded by the power, grace, generosity, intelligence, artistry and ingenuity of womyn. Through their determination, seismic changes are happening. They are the matriarchs of their families and their communities. In this segment of La Cocina's F&B, we’ll ask the voices from the kitchen to look at matriarchy through the lens of food and share their perspectives with stories that inspire, challenge, elaborate or celebrate the theme of matriarchy.
About Our Speakers |
F&B prioritizes and seeks the voices less often heard. Our event celebrates those voices, creating a platform to amplify their stories. We appreciate your help in identifying those voices, be they your’s, those of the story that you will tell, or an unlikely storyteller whom you might encourage to take the stage.
What You Should Send Us |
Here is a link to a form to pitch us your story idea, asking for a couple of paragraphs describing your story and other helpful information. Remember all stories should somehow touch on food and somehow relate to our theme (“Matriarchy” for November 2018). If you’ve ever been to an installment of F&B, you know that some of the stories will be tightly connected to food and our theme, and others will be only loosely tethered. Please know we value your idea and your effort behind your entry writeup; however, stories are not guaranteed to be included in the show and will be selected as we see most fitting to our theme and mission. If you have any questions, please reach out to Bonnie Ross, Executive Producer of F&B, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Looking forward to hearing from you! And if you’re not a storyteller, but you know someone who is, please pass this on.
