Daily Zoom: Synesthesia

$25.00 Members
$35.00 Non-members

Whether we craft prose or poetry (or a hybrid of the two), we aim to evoke a sensory experience for our readers; while we try to reflect the human condition, to craft a text a reader can relate to, we also strive to show the world anew by de-familiarizing the reader. The art of synesthesia can accomplish all of the above (to describe one sense by using another sense to do so). For instance, in her famous poem “I heard a Fly buzz when I died,” Emily Dickinson used both sight (“blue”) and touch (“stumbling”) to a describe a sound (“buzz”). In this mini-Zoom we will practice synesthesia by playing with the senses.
