I am facilitating an erotica writing workshop at An Unholy Harvest, Canada’s only annual weekend event for leatherdykes, trans folks and kinky gals of all bent persuasions! It’s been such a long time since I have had the chance to give a writing workshop, and it is going to be my first one at Harvest!

Creative Dives into Friction: An Erotica Writing Workshop
You probably already have the erotic writing drive. You most certainly keep, in your mental or emotional notebooks, those special stories in which you are the main character, and for which you and maybe a happy few are the select audience. I do, anyway! The stories that make us hard or wet we call fantasies. Some of us, sometimes, however, feel the need to share those stories, to turn those hot disjointed scenes into full-length fiction for a larger readership. An erotic story, as opposed to our intimate fantasies, is one designed to titillate other readers’ sexual imaginations. This workshop will help participants to convert the latter (fantasies) into the former (the erotic story), using brief presentations followed with practical exercises based on general writing techniques as well as ones that are more specific to erotica. Questions addressed in this workshop will include: definitions of erotica; the telling of erotica; erotic structures; erotic characters; styles of erotica; erotica in action. Bring tools to write and be prepared to dive in!
Note: You’re welcome to share what you’ve produced at the Erotica Open Mic on Sunday evening!
