Writing with the Senses: Short Story Writing Workshop with Karen Ince


March 12, 2019 by Tim Prater

On Saturday 1st June, the H G Wells Short Story Competition have organised a writing workshop in Folkestone for aspiring writers of all ages led by Karen Ince.

This workshop will explore the use of the senses, and how they can be engaged to enrich our writing. During this experiential session participants will have a chance to (re)discover the ways in which our own sensory experiences can provide inspiration, as well as how to include sensory detail in our writing to enhance reader involvement.

Bring your pen and paper / tablet / laptop ready to do some writing.

Tickets are free for those 21 and under, and £5 plus Eventbrite fees for those older than 21.
