Feeling stuck on an existing project? Would you love to write more but don’t know where to begin? In this workshop, we will explore writing exercises inspired by one or more of the five senses: taste, scent, touch, sight, and sound. We’ll experiment with writing prompts based on fragrance, as well as visual and auditory prompts, to generate ideas for both new and ongoing projects. We’ll also explore how the senses are deeply linked with memory—for example, how scent can bring us back to a specific place, moment, or feeling—and how writing with the five senses helps us create concrete details that engage readers. Writers of all levels are welcome. All you need to bring is a willingness to enjoy your writing experience and your favorite writing tools (paper and pen or laptop).
