The Art of Experience [Kim Brown Seely]
All Levels | Great travel writing, feature writing, personal essay, and memoir engages the reader in a writer’s keenly observed experience. But how, in an age of distraction, do you train yourself to observe intently, to soak in details like a sponge? And how do you translate those experiences to the page? In this exploratory course, Lowell Thomas Award-winning journalist and author Kim Brown Seely will share some of the tricks she’s learned in 30 years of “experiential” writing. She’ll start by sharing some of her favorite passages of experiential writing, then move into a shared activity designed to activate our senses and inspire new work.
