“Spatial and Chronological Writing Meet Sensory Input!”
led by Kenneth Lippincott, educator and author
This workshop focuses on the use of spatial and chronological writing techniques to craft a scene, so the reader may see, hear, taste, touch, and small the setting and experience the mood the author desires to create. Participants will practice techniques to move from the tangible to the intangible.
