Get Stuffed.

Let’s Write About Sex, Baby!

Join me on Saturday, November 4th from 10am to 3pm for one hot writing intensive!

This fall I’ll be making my debut as a teacher for The Writing Institute at Sarah Lawrence College! I will be leading a specialty workshop entitled: Let’s Write about Sex, Baby: The Art of Writing Erotica.

Erotic literature has been around for centuries. Authors such as D.H. Lawrence. Anne Rice, and yes, even E.L. James, have mastered the art of titillating the senses. However, this skill hasn’t come without criticism. Erotica tends to be looked down upon and viewed as trash or smut, but this isn’t or doesn’t have to be true. Erotica can be very literary. Whether you’re writing an erotic short story, a sex scene in your novel, or about romance and sensuality, this workshop will guide you in crafting the perfect prose to arouse. Let’s Write about Sex, Baby, will challenge perceptions about erotic writing, examine the language of erotica, and explore the difference between building sex into a story rather than building a story around sex. Gay, Lesbian, and Straight erotica will all be considered.

The workshop is open to all interested writers. Additional information about this workshop, including how to sign up, can be found on the registration page.

In support of the workshop, I will be reading at the Writing Institute Faculty Reading & Fall Open House on August 24th, 2017. The event will be held in the Wrexham Living Room (Location 3 / b4 on the map) at Sarah Lawrence College from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. Come listen to me heat things up with the opening of my short story “Lost.” This pirate-themed, reader favorite was originally published in Treasure Trial: Erotica Tales of Pirates on the High Seas (Alyson Books), and is included in my short story anthology, Erotica (New Lit Salon Press).

The reading and the workshop are sure to be fun-filled! We’ll be going in deep…I hope you’ll join me!
