Class Details

From the smell of your grandfather’s aftershave, to the particular lilt of your first love’s voice, small sensory details have the power to create big emotional impact. In this three-hour workshop we’ll explore ways to use the five senses to create richer scenes and build more meaningful connections with our audiences. Using class discussion, guided writing exercises, and close-readings of book excerpts and essays, we’ll practice tapping into our sensory tool-kit to craft engaging stories that connect body and mind.

Students who have taken ‘Writing the Body’ before are welcome to attend again. The workshop will include a mix of old and new reading material.
