Could your fictional or nonfictional narrative use some enhancement? Writing that is lush with sensory details helps a reader engage with your work on a visceral level, helps develop themes of universality and creates a sense of intimacy that invites them to experience themselves in your work and feel a personal connection to it.

Tapping into the senses is an effective way to add accessibility and make your writing more relatable, attracting readers who want to keep turning the page. In Sensory Writing (Online) with Teresa Piccari, focus on weaving sensory descriptions into your work to broaden cultural and geographic detail, and deepen a connection to the natural world and human intuition, to improve your style and support the creation of a unique writing voice.

This course is open to writers of all skill levels. Both fiction and nonfiction works are accepted.

Instructor note: We will use what I will call a “touchstone text” for this workshop. I encourage students to acquire a copy of the Vintage edition of A Natural History of the Senses by Diane Ackerman.  Available on Amazon here.
