Writing Sex [Sonya Lea]
All Levels. This workshop is against writing sex scenes and for writing compelling sex as if we are wholly made of sex; using sex and the body as a way of writing experience. A character’s messy truth is revealed through shame, humor, desire, frankness, obfuscation, and so much more. We will read Lidia Yuknavitch, Marguerite Duras, Erica Jong, Mary Gaitskill, Ian McEwan, and Mary Gordon. Focus is on generative writing and sharing work.
