Memoir Through the Senses – February 10 – Old Stone House, Park Slope
Sense Writing is a pragmatic and innovative approach to writing for artists, performers, writers, and anyone looking to find new dimensions to their work, overcome ineffective creative habits -- and make more art.
A one-day workshop at The Old Stone House dedicated to exploring new ways of creating work. You will use your own life stories to develop a personalized connection to the craft of writing.
- Fully inhabit the world of your writing through the senses
- Investigate and refine the link between simple physical patterning, expanded imagination, and craft.
- Complete one to two short pieces about your life.
Because the focus of the workshop is on what is felt and "tangible" rather than abstract ideas of "good writing," writers of all levels and genres learn to find pleasure in all the stages of the craft.
