Sense Writing I & II

Sense Writing, organized in three levels (I-III), is for writers of all levels and genres.  In Sense Writing I (Memory, Life Stories, and Fiction) & II (Making Connections), you will learn how to work with your nervous system to find flow and begin to develop and sustain larger pieces-- without struggle. By deeply exploring the first two principles of Sense Writing you will:

  • Learn to listen to your own writing by uncovering connections within your work.
  • Identify the inherent craft and structure 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 two workshops, writers will have completed five pieces of non-fiction, fiction, or both. This class prepares students for Sense Writing III: The Workshop, a repeating course where writers work toward completing a larger piece in their chosen genre.

What Others Are Saying

  • Sense Writing II is where I began to have little eureka moments. I came out of this course with an indispensable set of tools added to my writing arsenal. I’ve gone from writing nothing to writing several times a week, and when I do hit the occasional writing block I’m able to climb over it rather than give up and walk away.
    — Ariela Peleg
  • Once I experienced this flow, I understood what my friend meant when she said Sense Writing changed everything for her.
    — Iva Radivojevic, Filmmaker, Guggenheim Recipient
  • The Sense Writing workshops access a profundity that other writing workshops have rarely attained at this level.
    — Raluca Albu, Current MFA Candidate, Columbia University
  • Okay, what's a less dramatic way of telling you that this class has changed my life?
    — Olga Kreimer, Yoga Teacher and Current M.A. Candidate, University of Montana Journalism School
