Upcoming Events

Looking forward to presenting at…

Granbury Writers’ Bloc on Monday, February 25, 2019 in Granbury, TX

  • HOW TO BRING YOUR DEAD STORY TO LIFE: Writing Sensory Details… We all want our readers to feel like they are in our imaginary world with us. That’s accomplished through use of sensory details. Join Granbury Writers as Kathryn teaches about the human senses (some experts argue there are as many as twenty), and leads us through activities designed to improve our use of those senses in our writing. Come prepared to write!
