Hungry Words: Library Food Wanted for New Canadian Journal
Beer and Butter Tarts is a new quarterly Canadian food journal coming December 2013, and they want writing to help them with their launch. As if many aspiring writers needed a better reason to gobble up a delectable spring tart, pilaf, or pasta dish. Am I making you hungry? Fantastic! French Toast.
