"Memoir Through the Senses"
In this one-day workshop use your own life stories to explore the connection between your senses, emotions, and thoughts.
In a supportive atmosphere:
•Fully inhabit the world of your writing through your senses.
•Investigate and refine the link between simple physical patterning, expanded imagination, and craft.
•Complete two or three short pieces.
Because the focus of the approach is on what is felt and "tangible" rather than abstract ideas of "good writing," writers of all levels and genres learn to bypass judgment, inhabit their writing, and find pleasure in all the stages of the craft.
Open to writers of all levels and genres.
An intimate, six-hour workshop.
