The food issue

16 May

Btsjan07 Food is nutritional, fashionable, cultural and political. It’s also big business.

Now that issue 16 of Behind the Spin (the environmental issue) has been published, we’re looking for ideas for issue 17 of the public relations magazine for students and young practitioners. You could write about:

That’s without mentioning drink. But what are your ideas? Brief proposals are welcome now (copy deadline will be in August). Please send your ideas to John Hitchins or to me.

    Could you please provide a list of all the issues covered.

    The primary theme for the next issue of Behind the Spin is PR aspects of food and drink.
    We also welcome other ideas, but at this stage are most likely to commission articles that address this main theme.

    No one ever said it before: cake sells… cake convinces. So would you like to write an article, Serena? Food is the new sex (now that has been said before).

    Not sure if I’ll be able to devote the time needed to write a proper piece. I’m currently spending most of my time jobhunting (the funding for my current role runs out in five weeks).
