This month’s regular meeting features a not-to-be-missed presentation by funny and fantastically smart author Eileen Cook who will share her expertise on the topic of writing with senses. The October 18th meeting is open to guests.
We’re always told to use all five senses when writing, but did you realize that what you include can enhance your character descriptions? We’ll discuss how the senses are filtered through our character’s identity, what they notice and how they would describe their experiences vary from individual to individual. We’ll explore when an where you can add sensory details to your manuscript to pull your readers into the experience. Bring paper and pen and get ready to do some writing!
