We’re a community festival, currently staffed entirely by volunteers. What we like to do is spread the load so that no one person has too much to do. That’s our notion of how communities work well together.
We provide lots of ways for locals and those further afield to get involved and support our efforts to spread the word about our Festival and the abundant quality food produced by the many enthusiastic producers throughout the county of Fife.
For the 2013 Crail Food Festival, we’re planning a series of articles to be published on this website, one per week for the 10 weeks leading up to the Festival. In previous years, our fabulous volunteer Chiara, who writes so beautifully on her Wine and Olives blog has interviewed producers and participants and helped as our Festival has developed from small beginnings and a dream back in 2010.
If you currently write a blog about food or drink, and would like to be involved, please read the requirements below and let us know by commenting with your contact details, and we’ll be in touch to discuss how you can be involved.
How can bloggers or food writers get involved?
We’re looking for one article per volunteer, on an aspect of cooking, eating, enjoying, preparing or reviewing fabulous Food From Fife. The article will be published here on the Crail Food Festival website, and promoted via our Facebook page and Twitter profile. We will include links to your own website, with appropriate credits. It would be helpful if you can also include at least one photograph to illustrate the article.
Depending on the type of blog post you will be creating, we can supply you with a recipe to follow, or ingredients to use, or contact with a producer for you to carry out an interview. We have a (small) budget for this to ensure that some expenses of the exercise are met. Let us know if there’s some aspect you’d particularly like to write about, or if you’d like to be issued with a challenge!
How can Crail Food Festival 2013 participants get involved?
If you’re going to be taking a stall at our Food Market on 15 June 2013, or at our Harbour Fun Day on 16 June 2013, get in touch and let us know you’d like to be involved in the publicity we’ll be creating about our event. We’ll put you in contact with one of our team of volunteer bloggers, or supply them with one of your ingredients to cook with or sample. This is an ideal way of spreading the news about the delicious food you produce, grow or prepare. We will be promoting information about all of our producers who get in touch in the lead up to the 2013 Crail Food Festival.
