Steamy: How to Write About Sex
Learn to write about sex like a pro!
To write about well about sex, you need:
the boldness to command and describe the dirty and oh so delicious acts we humans explore, and
the basic writing skills of plot, setting, and character.
In this pen-to-paper writing workshop we'll look at some examples of both extremely successful and unsuccessful erotica. You'll learn:
how to write steamy love letters for your sweetheart,
step up your blog to the next level,
where to submit your work for publication in the erotica world, and
quick basics for editing your work.
Bring a paper and writing utensil, we will be doing writing exercises.
