Humans experience the world through the five senses. In this workshop, we will use our own memories of taste, touch, sight, sound, and smell to make descriptions of place and setting more unique and specific. Generative exercises will encourage writers to consider how the story world helps shape character and how their characters experience the world. Are there certain senses that might be more pronounced in the world of the story? Do your characters feel more comfortable or competent with one or two of their senses? How are you, as a writer, utilizing your full arsenal of descriptions to help your reader embrace and experience the world you have created?

This generative workshop is aimed primarily at writers of speculative fiction, but is applicable and suitable for all writers and writing levels.
