Issue Cover

Writers' Forum  |  235  


Whenever I see new writers being told to use all the senses I wince. The trouble is it’s so easy to overdo it. You’re enjoying a book when suddenly you’re distracted by a description of someone’s aftershave or the feel of a silk tie. Or the protagonist is suddenly appreciating the taste of a coffee in determinedly unclichéd ways, even though
he’s expecting to be attacked at any moment. The senses
are shoehorned in like a sex scene in a 1980s action film.
As the writer ticks the five boxes it can start to feel like an
interminable jazz concert where the pianist, then the bass
player, then the drummer all keep hogging the spotlight in
turn. But, as Barbara Dynes shows on page 24, great authors
do it without you really noticing, and then only when
appropriate. The trick is to handle the senses sensitively.

Writers' Forum

I am Mexican, Spanish speaker and an English teacher too. As a nonnative English speaker, I can tell your articles are really inspiring for those of us dealing with the writing section of Cambridge FCE exams. To my mind, "Writers Forum" is better than "Writing Magazine". Audio extracts and something like under the microscope section of "Writing Magazine" would be my suggestions for "Writers Forum". I really enjoy your magazine. Jose Domínguez Puebla, Mexico. Reviewed Saturday, April 11, 2020
