Fall Craft Intensive: Yohanca Delgado


Editor's Note

The Literary Sensorium: Writing from the Body with Yohanca Delgado
Sunday, December 10th
10 AM – 1 PM PST / 1 – 4 PM EST

As we spend more time in virtual spaces, vibrant descriptions of physicality and embodiment may fade from our drafts. In our time together, we will look at texts that model the narrative power that sensory description offers us in deepening characterization, evoking rich setting, and in underscoring theme in our writing. Our generative work together will explore some of the many ways in which we can draw from our own sensory experience of the world to create compelling and immersive fiction.

This is a class best suited for writers of all experience levels.


The scholarship for this intensive has been awarded.
