To write our characters and scenes in fiction, we need to put all our senses to work for the purpose of creating the same sensations in our readers. But how do we do that when our medium is the printed word: monochrome scratches on paper or screen that engage only our sense of sight?
In this generative two-session workshop, we will delve into our senses in order to access them fully, then use words to move them from our own experience to our readers.
