Here’s how it works:

Each week, for six weeks, I’ll send you a special writing assignment that consists of three clues: a character, a setting, and a pivotal object that exists within the story you’re going to write.

These images will be accompanied by an audio lesson on how to write using one of six senses: sight, sound, touch, scent, taste, and intuition.

Use that sense with the three clues to create a unique story each week!

You’ll also be invited to a private online forum where you can discuss each week’s assignment and share your writing in our community.

Come to your senses. Write six new stories in six weeks. 

Sign up now. The first assignment will hit your inbox on Sunday, December 31st (or as soon as you sign up if it is after that date).

I will also send you my weekly newsletters about writing and the programs we offer at the school, which you can unsubscribe from anytime.
