with Rachel Kramer Bussel
All you need to write hot erotica is an open mind and some imagination! If you’ve ever thought about putting those racy thoughts in your head down on the page, this is the workshop for you. Rachel Kramer Bussel, professional erotica author and editor of over 60 erotica anthologies, will guide you through the ins and outs of modern erotic writing. Learn how to get started, find your voice and write from various viewpoints. You'll discover how to incorporate everyday scenarios, settings and objects as well as outlandish fantasies into your writing.
Whether you're writing to that special someone, penning longtime fantasies, or want to experiment with erotica as a way of exploring your own sexuality, this workshop is for you. And if you want to earn cash for your dirty words, Rachel can teach you how to make them fit for particular publications, as well as sharing advice on submitting your work, selecting a pseudonym, building your author brand and keeping up with the thriving erotica market.
No prior writing experience is required. Please bring paper or writing implements or a laptop for in class writing exercises. A bibliography with erotica resources will be provided. Open to all.
