A Symphony with the Senses

About this event

Attention to the senses is a form of meditation that not only anchors writers to their creative source, it provides nuanced information about character, setting, and even plot.

Inspired by Linda Rui Feng’s Swimming Back to Trout River, this workshop takes a deep dive into the essence of your subject matter by awakening and writing with the five senses: sound, smell, sight, touch, taste.

Beginner and experienced writers welcome. Bring a work-in-progress (novel, short story, poem, or memoir) or use the exercises to discover something new.

Marnie holds a Master of Fine Arts from the City University of New York where she studied creative writing. As fiction editor for the Brooklyn Review, she took editorial direction from beat poet Allen Ginsberg.
