Let’s Write about Sex, Baby: Again!

Due to the success of the first Let’s Write about Sexy, Baby: The Art of Writing Erotica workshop in November, The Writing Institute at Sarah Lawrence College is running a second workshop this spring!

Join me on Saturday, May 12th from 10am to 3pm for one hot writing intensive!

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. If you missed the first workshop, (or even if you didn’t!), come join me this spring. It’s going to be HOT.
