Eat, Write, Retreat and Canadian Beef #EWR12

I am very super excited for the news I am about to share with you! Have you heard of the conference in Washington DC called Eat, Write, Retreat?

If you haven't heard of it, this is an annual food conference to help food writers and bloggers learn more about photography, food styling, writing and cooking. It also offers networking with other bloggers, writers and food brands.

Okay so here is the news, at the beginning of February Canadian Beef posted about a contest they were having on their blog for 3 scholarships (accommodations, and conference ticket) to Eat, Write, Retreat. This meant they would chose a food blogger from Canada on 3 Mondays in February. To enter you had to write a post about a memory you have that includes beef, something you learned on the Canadian Beef site or a beef recipe, all posts must include Canadian Beef site link and also a link to Eat, Write, Retreat.

I decided that this sounds like a wonderful experience and if anything a great place to learn from the pros. Off I went to write a post or three and enter this wonderful contest that Canadian Beef was offering. 

You may have noticed the beef posts - Mom's Quick Meal with @Canadian Beef, Homemade Hamburger Helper, & Cheese Stuffed Meatballs these were my entries into this amazing contest.

On February 27th, 2012 around 4pm my phone did it's little thing for a Twitter notification and there it was

FINAL winner is @Couponmomcanada ! @EatWriteRetreat we're sending you 3 fun ladies! @FoodMuser & @LynnLawandi "

I could not believe my eyes, I had just won the last scholarship to attend Eat, Write, Retreat! I will be heading off to this conference in less than two months and I have a million things to do before then and have my mind in conference overload!

Watch for more posts on how I am preparing for this conference and posts after the conference. If you are interested why not........
If you can not make it and want to join in on the conversation on Twitter use hashtag #EWR12
