Sense Writing

"The Sense Writing workshops access a profundity that other writing workshops have rarely attained at this level." - Raluca Albu, MFA Columbia University and Fiction Editor, Bomb Magazine

Taught at leading conservatories, universities, and retreat centers, Sense Writing is a highly generative approach to the process of writing developed by Madelyn Kent, Feldenkrais Practitioner and former Faculty of Creative Writing at NYU.

Combining gentle movement and writing sequences, you will learn to:
• Interrupt body and language patterns that inhibit writing
• Find pleasure in all stages of writing, including re-writing
• Complete two substantial pieces of writing in two days


It's not just the body and physical sensation that Madelyn Kent leverages with Sense Writing but the whole elaborate composition of human movement, which she expertly combines with similarly formal exercises from writing pedagogy.
