Teacher & Developer


All workshops led by Sense Writing's Developer Madelyn Kent, former Lecturer in Creative Writing at New York University. 

Sense Writing is organized in three levels. Start with Sense Writing I and continue with levels II & III.

Sense Writing I: Memory, Life Stories and Fiction

A prerequisite for Sense Writing II & III. For Writers of All Levels and Genres.

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced writer struggling with a block, Sense Writing I is your way in. Calm your nervous system, find lightness in your body, and mine your imagination, all while connecting to the core of your craft. Sense Writing frees you from the thoughts you think you “should” be thinking so you learn to create without anxiety. 

All workshops are taught in English. Interested in a course geared for Hebrew speakers and writers? Please see below for כתיבה חושית


Sense Writing II: Making Connections

Open to those who have taken Sense Writing I.

In this workshop, you will learn how to sustain larger pieces-- without struggle. By working deeply with the first two principles of Sense Writing:

  • Learn to listen to your own writing by uncovering connections within your work.
  • Identify the inherent structures that are forming within your writing.
  • Clarify your creative goals and work towards them effectively and with ease in and out of the classroom.

By the end of the workshop, writers will have several completed stories of non-fiction, fiction, or both. This class prepares students for Sense Writing III: The Workshop, where writers will be working toward a larger piece (a novel, collection of stories, play, or screenplay) in their chosen genre

Sense Writing III: The Workshop

A repeating workshop, open to those who have already participated in Sense Writing III or have completed Sense Writing II.

Now that you have the practice in your bones, this workshop allows you to spiral through all four principles of Sense Writing while working towards larger pieces without feeling over-whelmed. The series is designed so that by the end of your first iteration of Sense Writing III, you will be working towards a collection of shorter works or a longer piece (a book, screenplay, or play) in your chosen genre-- with a sense of ease and trust.  Know where you are going while still remaining open to the process.  Repeat the workshop as often as it fits your creative goals.
