PLEASE NOTE: 2022 MEETINGS WILL BE HELD ON THE SECOND SATURDAY OF EACH MONTH.
Sensory Journaling: Getting in Touch with the World Around You, A Writers' Guide
PRESENTER: Pamela Moran
Writers tend to live to live in their heads, in imaginary places, with imaginary people, and the real world simply gets in the way of creating.
But, it doesn't have to be that way.
If we ground ourselves in the physical world, through our senses, we're more present, more tuned into the now, and experience the world around us in a fuller, more satisfying way.
We'll be exploring all five senses, in addition to inner awareness, through lectures and guided journal prompts. I'll take you along a sensory journey where you'll tap into and experience each sense as you journal, enhancing your perceptions, your writing, the connections your reader feels toward your characters, and ultimately enriching your storytelling.
As writers, we spend a lot of time in front of the computer, fingers on the keyboard. I'll be asking you (for as long as you're able) to eschew the keyboard for old fashioned pen and paper. There's something that happens in the brain when we're holding that pen and scribbling across a piece of paper, something intangible with that tactile experience.
There will be a lot of writing, it's the nature of this workshop, so be sure to bring your favorite journal with you to class.
Come spend a beautiful Saturday morning with us. We are looking forward to seeing YOU!
