The sensory details that infuse our everyday experience—the smell of a favorite dish cooking, the texture of a well-worn coat, hearing a song that reminds us of a time in our lives—can add richness and spark to what we write. Using sensory prompts, Laura will show you how to tap into your best material, enriching memory and story with imagery and detail. With her book, Writing from the Senses, as your guide, you’ll never have to stare at a blank page or computer screen again. For writers at all levels.

Laura Deutsch leads writing workshops from Tassajara to Tuscany and has taught writing at UC Berkeley and SFSU. Her writing has appeared in the LA Times, SF Chronicle, Eating Well, and other publications and has aired on public radio.
