I have written about this a number of times over the months, but it’s time to say more. A couple of years ago, through my poetic writing muse, Geoffrey, I met Zoe Keithley. I started attending monthly writing workshops she led. Her workshops are different than your usual writing group — where people write from prompts or bring works in progress for discussion and critique.
No, instead, Zoe takes writers on a journey that takes participants both inside their heads and into the scenes that form the foundation of stories. We sit and listen for a sound outside and then place it in a scene and describe the scene. We take a location and identify the sights, sounds, and smells that exist in that location. It is a very mental, visual, creative approach. One that can and should lead to a deeper, more profound telling of a story.
