Sounds and silences help us describe movement, whether physical, intellectual, or emotional. In this workshop, we will develop strategies for encapsulating this kind of imagery in our writing.

"Imagery" is the term we use to define description that appeals to the senses—and the visual image is often the first go-to when we're setting a scene or introducing a character. Sounds and voices, music and silences often come secondarily—and this kind of imagery can foreshadow or introduce change, disruption, and/or instability. Sounds and silences help us as writers describe movement, whether physical, intellectual, or emotional. But how can we describe sounds and silences in ways that affect the reader? In this workshop, we will analyze examples of atmospheric sounds, voices, music, and different qualities of silence; consider how sounds and silences can serve as inspiration; and develop strategies for encapsulating sounds and silences in our writing.  

In partnership with StoryStudio Chicago.

This event will be held live online using Zoom. Once you have registered, check your email the day of the program for a link to join the meeting.
