Penning the Nasty: Explorations Into Writing Sexuality [Katherine Standefer]
Introductory | How do we write sex? And if we don’t, why not? In this 12-hour intensive, participants will consider the role of the sex scene in storytelling, discuss the politics and ethics of writing sex, and explore the differences between pornography, erotica, and literary sex writing. Along the way, participants will gain a greater comfort discussing, writing, and publishing sensual and sexual writing. This class is primarily generative. All participants must show up ready to cultivate a fun, safe, nonjudgmental space. This class includes a lunch break.
