Using All the Senses with David D. Levine

04/18/2024 05:00 PM - 06:30 PM PT


  • $75.00  -  Supporting Tuition
  • $57.00  -  Helping Hands


One of the most basic pieces of writing advice is to engage all of the reader's senses. An easy writing mistake is to use only sight and hearing. But why stop with touch, taste, and smell? People interact with the world in more ways than that... let's explore them in our fiction as well.

This class meets online for a single 90-minute session.
