Writing the 7 Senses
NEW FOR 2020: CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP FOR CHILDREN IN FEBRUARY HALF-TERM! SEE BELOW:
As a photographer and a writer, I know how important the sense of sight is. But often people don't realise how important the other senses are, and how we can become better writers by learning how to pay attention and have fun with each one.
Writing the 7 Senses is my method to facilitate creative writing workshops for children and adults.
Using observation techniques, music, humour and artwork, I create a free and creative space that allows people to improve their skills in observation and exercise their imagination. By choosing different stimuli to generate ideas, there are many pathways to imaginative expression. For children especially, this helps to build skills and self-confidence.
Thinking and writing about characters from different backgrounds also builds empathy and knowledge of the world. This is so important in these difficult times; indeed, these kinds of techniques have the potential to improve relationships amongst children and the wider diverse communities where we live and work.
Writing the 7 Senses is running after-school creative writing workshops for children, and morning sessions in the half-term. The next session available is on Tuesday 18 February taking place at Manor House Library, 34 Old Rd, London SE13 5SY from 10:15-11:45 am.
This session will involve many creative writing prompts including music, art and humour. The age range is suggested from 7-11, but please do get in touch if your child has a special interest and we will see what we can arrange.
