See, hear, taste, smell, touch. You know the traditional five senses, but how familiar are you with the other thirteen? In this two-class craft intensive, we will read excerpts from Rushdie, Esquivel, Lispector, Nabokov, and Kafka, in addition to articles about the complexity of human sense perception. We will complete writing exercises that practice traditional senses and also explore beyond the big five.
