Sensory Elements in Writing – Fall 2022

The new date for this class is Saturday, December 10 at 10:30 am.

For both fiction and non-fiction writers, the smallest building blocks of sensory detail can strengthen character, world, and setting in ways that will enthrall your reader and keep them reading until the last page. We’ll talk sensory detail and engage in exercises to better utilize imagination as well as the world around us for stronger writing no matter what your project.

Elizabeth Kilcoyne is an author of spooky books about dead things, including her YA Gothic Horror novel Wake the Bones (2022, Wednesday Books). She currently lives in Lexington.

This class is suitable for all levels.
