Whether you want to add one sexy scene to your story/novel or dream about writing an erotic poem or story that will charm, excite and perhaps blow your reader’s mind, this class will give you some guidance. What makes good erotic writing? What’s the difference between erotic and pornographic? (Is there a difference?) What is your personal erotic/sensual aesthetic? Sensuality and mischievous humor can be woven into your memoir, plays, and documentary writing too. We’ll read examples of effective sex writing and “bad” (by this I mean something that makes you cringe, not bad in a good way) sex writing. We’ll do in-class writing exercises and, following the first session, submit work to our colleagues for critique. I will also invite a local “sexpert” to one class to give us inspiration.
