Next month I’m the host of the Italian Food, Wine and Travel (ItalianFWT) writers group and I’ve chosen the couldn’t-be-broader topic of Favorite Italian Red Wines for Fall.
Italian Food, Wine and Travel
On the first Saturday of the month, a group of food, wine and travel bloggers post about a region or a wine varietal. For September’s event, we look towards the change of season with food and wine that celebrate cooler weather and the abundance of harvest.
These wines can be from any region, based on your own experience and preference. We are looking for roundup lists, pairing suggestions, travel inspiration, producer profiles and any other story that highlights red wine from Italy this time of year.
The Favorite Italian Red Wines For Fall #ItalianFWT event will be Saturday, September 1, 2018. Posts will go live early that morning and you can follow along on a Twitter chat — using #ItalianFWT — from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. CT.
Details for participation
If you are a writer interested in participating, send an email to tell me you’re in (include your blog URL and Twitter handle) and your post title by Tuesday, August 28th to be included in the preview post, which will link to your blog and announce all of the participants. When your post goes live, the published title should include #ItalianFWT so that readers can clearly discover your post and associate it with the event.
Publish your post between 12:01 a.m-7:00 a.m. ET on Saturday, September 1. You can always schedule your post in advance if you will be tied up around then.
In your post, include a link to the other #ItalianFWT participants in your post and a description of what the event is about. Here is how it works: I’ll provide HTML code you can easily put in your initial post to link up with the other blogs participating. After everyone has published their post, I’ll release update HTML so that you can link right up to all of the relevant articles, building an ongoing resource for your readers as they come back to this topic year after year.
Get social! After the posts go live, please visit your fellow bloggers’ posts’ to comment and share.
Sponsored posts are OK if clearly disclosed. Please be sure to disclose if your post is sponsored or if you are describing wine or other products for which you have received a free sample.
If you are new to the event and would like more detailed instructions, don’t hesitate to reach out via my contact form. I can walk you through it all.
