What are the challenges of writing good erotic prose and poetry? Is erotic writing a separate genre or can it be an integral part of all genres? If so, how do we get past the trap of the subjective and build erotic voices grounded in our various characters, setting and voice? How can using humor, bad sex or even problematic sex lend themselves to a fuller – and yes hotter – interaction between two characters? Ultimately what is the relationship between sex and literature and how can we make it naturally fit in the flow of a good story?

Suggested donation of $10.

Please bring pen and paper.

Limited to 15 participants.
