Veterans Writing Workshop: The Power of Imagery

  • Kansas City public Library - Plaza Branch 4801 Main Street Kansas City, MO, 64112 United States (map)

By studying examples of memorable, imagistic writing, we will learn how writers imaginatively engage the senses of touch, sight, sound, smell, and taste to create vivid scenes, paragraphs and stories. Writers can either bring their writing from the previous week to work on, or begin a new piece with suggested writing prompts.
