How Peer Group Support Network Helps Food Writer Develop - Cathy Erway

In Chapter 7 of 19 in her 2011 Capture Your Flag interview with Erik Michielsen, author and food writer Cathy Erway shares how her food writing peer community provides a collective sense of group unity. This unity allows the group to confide in one another, seek understanding, and develop professionally, including increasing specialization as experience and confidence grow. Erway is the author of "The Art of Eating In: How I learned to Stop Spending and Love the Stove." She writes two blogs, "Not Eating Out in New York" ( ) and "Lunch at Six Point" ( ). Erway earned her B.A. in Creative Writing from Emerson College.
