For someone who travels a lot, you’re not very good at it.
— My boyfriend to me during my frantic morning packing and looking for my phone, chargers, etc. It’s true but I’ll keep doing it anyway!

I’m excited to do my very first Washington, DC event teaching Erotica Writing 101 this Saturday 7-8:30 pm at Secret Pleasures. Details below. Register at Brown Paper Tickets. Yes, there will be political erotica!
Professional erotica author and editor Rachel Kramer Bussel, editor of over 50 anthologies such as The Big Book of Orgasms, Flying High and Best Bondage Erotica 2014, will take you through the ins and outs of modern erotic writing, from getting started, finding your voice, and incorporating your surroundings, pop culture, and personal experiences into your stories to crafting a range of characters and settings and submitting your work. In this supportive, welcoming workshop environment, you’ll learn how to write vividly about everyday scenarios as well as outlandish fantasies, and make them fit for particular publications in the thriving erotica market. This workshop will address the recent boom in erotica inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey, provide examples of well written erotica, and will include multiple writing exercises. You’ll be given a handout listing major markets and further reading suggestions. No previous writing experience required. Please bring laptop or pen and paper.
