What is Sense Writing?

Sense Writing is a ground-breaking approach to creative writing that helps you find your intrinsic capacity for creative flow. Learn to work with your body and nervous system to uncover richer processes of artistic discovery.

Combining accessible writing and movement sequences, Sense Writing has helped over 600 people in seven countries-- non-writers and writers-- unlock their voice. Start with Sense Writing I: Memory, Life Stories, and Fiction, and continue with Sense Writing II & III. And now, when you sign up for any Sense Writing workshop, you receive an exclusive Sense Writing Training© recording, so you can bring the practice home!

Sense Writing I: Memory, Life Stories, and Fiction

For everyone. Sense Writing I is a prerequisite for all other workshops.

  • Work with the nervous system to interrupt body and language patterns that inhibit writing
  • Find pleasure in all the stages of writing
  • Refine your craft
  • Complete two pieces of memoir and/or fiction.

Includes written feedback of your work by Madelyn.
