Using the Five Senses of Memory: A Writing Workshop
We learn about the world through our senses so in writing we must translate our experiences into the language of our senses so others can “feel” it, too. In this Rochester Writes workshop led by Gail Hosking we will use these sensory gateways of our bodies. We will gather these autobiographical images to write about ordinary things. In doing so, we will create moments of being for others to savor. Open to writers of all levels.
Free and open to the public. Hosted by the Arts & Literature Division. Please contact Carol Moldt at 428-8375 or Carol.Moldt@libraryweb.org for more information.
