    Tracey BennewiesParis truly sparkles during the holidays. The store windows, glittering lights, and diverse quartier decorations are a photographic feast.

    In this night workshop, we’ll visit the best spots (Grand Boulevard department stores, Champs Elysées, Place de la Concorde) and learn the tricks of exposing for night lights, shooting through windows, light painting, and just generally capturing the joy of the season. You might even get the image you need for your personalized holiday card. For sure, we’ll end the evening with a cup of chocolate or vin chaud.

    Champagne & foie gras simply speak celebration.

    What better time of year than early December to learn about creating a presentation of celebratory food and wine for special end-of-year guests (or why not, just yourselves?).

    This tasting will feature 4 different specially selected champagnes from different Champagne Houses, along with duck foie gras and crusty bread.

    Indulge yourself : come, taste, judge, discuss and decide what you like and most of all, which champagne and which foie gras really give you pleasure. Learning this exciting combination of champagne and foie gras and then presenting this natural combination at your next holiday event will impress everyone.

    Register early. We expect this unique course to fill quickly.

    About the instructor: Hélène Goble comes from a wine-producing family in Bordeaux and organizes wine tasting events and annual wine tours of Bordeaux and Champagne.  As well as presenting wines, she will introduce you to the French ’savoir-vivre’ and secrets of wine selection that will leave you impressed.  Hélène is a graduate of the Wine and Spirit Education Trust in London.

    A thriving market exists for features, including content for websites and blogs. This class begins by defining the important distinction between the feature article and "hard news," and explores how to find viable ideas for articles.

     We will then cover several aspects of feature-writing, focusing on the vital lead paragraph (hooks, angles, and grabbing  the reader's attention), structure, and narrative techniques that can enrich the article. Finally we examine a range of research resources and ways to market the feature.

    About the instructor:  Alecia McKenzie is a writer and journalist based in Paris. She holds an MSc from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and worked at The Wall Street Journal/Europe early in her career. Alongside writing books, she has written articles for a news agency and for international magazines and newspapers. She is the founder and editor of arts-news site SWAN.
