University of Kentucky to host ‘Craft Writing: Beer, The Digital and Craft Culture’ in February

Craft Writing Event

Press Release:

(Lexington, KY) – Craft Writing: Beer, The Digital, and Craft Culture, February 15, 2014.

The University of Kentucky

Craft Writing is a one day symposium at the University of Kentucky that will showcase brewers and professional writers from the craft beer industry. While many beer events showcase craft beer, Craft Writing is one of the few events to feature the professional writing done in the craft beer industry.

Craft beer writing – in print and digital media –has played a major role in promoting the business of craft beer. Craft Writing will serve as an event that draws interdisciplinary attention to the ways industry utilizes writing – in various digital forms – to promote, inform, highlight, argue, market, brand, and foster relationships between products, consumers, and other relevant parties.

Stan Hieronymus, author of For The Love of Hops, Brewing with Wheat, and Brew Like a Monk. Blogger at Appellation Beer and For the Love of Hops.
