Saucy Stories: The Art of Desire

SAUCY STORIES: The Art of Desire with Jamie Cat Callan
SATURDAY, February 7, 1–4 pm
Tuition: $70 ($60 members)

Writing a sexy story is a lot like a strip tease. You have
to slowly undress the narrative, take your time, add all the details, use your
senses, let the narrative flow into a strong dramatic arc and push the plot to finish
with a strong climactic moment that reverberates in the reader’s mind and
heart. This one-day course is tailor-made for beginning as well as advanced
writers who want to explore a variety of techniques for writing erotic fiction.
Participants engage in a series of writing exercises that open up sensory and
emotional awareness to create prose that is borne from a deeper place within
them. Stories are discussed in a supportive, nurturing environment that serves
to encourage, as well as familiarize the writer with the elements of theme,
viewpoint, structure, voice and the fine art of titillation.
