As a photographer and a writer, I know how important the sense of sight is. But often people don’t realise how important the other senses are, and how we can become better writers by learning how to pay attention and have fun with each one.
Writing the 7 Senses is my method to facilitate creative writing workshops for children and adults.
Using observation techniques, music, humour and artwork, I create a free and creative space that allows people to improve their skills in observation and exercise their imagination. By choosing different stimuli to generate ideas, there are many pathways to imaginative expression. For children especially, this helps to build skills and self-confidence.
Thinking and writing about characters from different backgrounds also builds empathy and knowledge of the world. This is so important in these difficult times; indeed, these kinds of techniques have the potential to improve relationships amongst children and the wider diverse communities where we live and work.
