Adventures in Sensory Storytelling is a new weekly blog for anyone interested in Sensory Stories. Here I will share my experiences of developing this relatively new way of telling stories. As well as information on the what, how and why of sensory stories, I will share my highlights, mistakes, insights as well as tips and hints if you want to have a go at telling some Sensory Stories yourself (I highly recommend it).
