"Thirty years ago my older brother, who was  ten years old at the time, was trying to get a  report on birds written that he'd had three months to  write. It was due the next day. We were out at our  family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen  table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper  and pencils and unopened books on birds,  immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead.

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.
For writers of all levels.
