    Explore how descriptive writing can transform your work. To write with descriptive words and make the reader’s world picture perfect. To create a world where our reader can see or ‘picture’ the world we create where our setting and characters are believable.

    First Week:

    Discussion about what is descriptive writing and how it will expand your world of writing. How to obtain the eye of the world around you and to reveal how to use it in your writing. Begin on the five senses and how they help paint your words.

    Second Week:

    We will look at sensory detail in more depth. What we see, hear, taste, touch, and feel. How to use this to make our writing pop. We will also examine use of metaphors and similes in writing and the way action verbs keep our stories exciting and moving.

    Third Week:

    Discuss how description can bring our characters and setting to life, which leads to a more exciting page-turner. In addition, how point of view can assist in writing your descriptive piece.

    Fourth Week:

    Close the workshop with how writing description helps with pace and makes a world of vivid storytelling that will keep your reader wanting more.
