Bringing Color to Your Writing with Heather Hansman


Feb 21, 2023, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM PST

Online Workshop


How do you write stories that have a sense of place? Ones that pull people into a scene?

Those kinds of vivid scenes can be the most fun pieces to read, but they can also be the hardest to write. In this class, we’ll unlock some ideas for how to bring sensory details to the page. We’ll practice the art of noticing. We’ll talk about bringing color and light to our writing while also leaving room for white space. We’ll try to operate by the tenants of the great Mary Oliver: “Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it.”

Suggested Materials

Pen and/or pencil

A notebook or scratch paper to write on
