In this workshop, we will be looking at passages which exemplify the use of smell imagery and discussing our reaction to them and brainstorm words which effectively describe smells.
Participants will be asked to bring an object to the session, preferably found in the bathroom or kitchen that has a distinctive smell to participate in a writing exercise. The challenge will be to write up one piece as a poem or flash.
