Join Me For Writing the Five Senses: 5-week class starts June 6, 2024

Sensory details enrich fiction and nonfiction and are crucial to depicting character, setting and tone, yet writers often fail to give much attention to senses other than sight. Join me and the Great Smokies Writing Program in person this summer for WRITING THE FIVE SENSES: A PROSE WORKSHOP, a generative 5-week class where we will explore all the senses: sound, smell, touch, taste and sight. You will learn how to select sensory details that are both original and instantly familiar to the reader, while avoiding clichés. We’ll look at examples of sensory details well rendered on the page, and do in-class exercises and prompts to get you thinking more deeply about how to give each sense its due.
