In this workshop, we'll use sensory prompts to help us tap into memory and story for vivid imagery and detail. With instruction and techniques from Laura's book, Writing from the Senses, you’ll never have to stare at a blank page or computer screen again. We'll practice awareness of the five senses, plus motion and intuition — and learn how to write about the senses in our authentic voice. This workshop includes creative writing exercises and feedback, along with meditation to awaken awareness, spark creativity and make our writing come alive.
