Joanna Grace is the author of a range of accessible sensory stories, some of which have been published by Oxfam and Amnesty International. Joanna has created a Kickstarter project that hopes to create a carefully crafted range of affordable sensory stories to sell on-line.
The Kickstarter Sensory Stories project, if funded, aims to complete within seven months. Backers get all kinds of interesting rewards. This is a great project, well worth supporting.
Reminds me a little of this passage from Jack Kerouac's The Dharma Bums that I'm half-way through at the minute: "A real haiku's gotta be as simple as porridge and yet make you see the real thing, like the greatest haiku of them all probably is the one that goes 'The sparrow hops along the veranda, with wet feet.' By Shiki. You see the wet footprints like a vision in your mind and yet in those few words you also see all the rain that's been falling that day and almost smell the wet pine needles."
