My Workshop at Eroticon2013: The Lens of Eroticism: Romanticism with a big R & Eroticism with a big E.

tumblr_l5fdbdfKUi1qzhl9eo1_500I have the pleasure of offering a workshop at this year’s Eroticon 2013: Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd March 2013 which will be held at the Coin Street Conference Centre, 108 Stamford Street, SE1 9NH I’m privileged to be presenting along with a number of other wonderful writers, photographers, publishers and bloggers.

Here, if you’d like to join us, is my workshop description:
Saturday: 2nd March: 12.30 – 13.15 : Session 3

Creative writing 2 : The Lens of Eroticism: Romanticism with a big R & Eroticism with a big E. 

With literally thousands of erotica novels being published every year, how do you write the unpredictable? This workshop will offer tools to help writers eroticize their stories beyond the sex scene. We’ll be looking at how detail & conflict are the engines of the erotic: in character, setting, plot and language. We’ll also examine how to approach sex scenes from unusual angles, and look at strategies for avoiding the predictable. Attendees are asked, if possible, to bring a notebook and have a pairing and a setting to work with.

Who is it for : novice and experienced writers seeking to improve their writing.

I do hope to see you there.

      I don’t come to the US very often. I did give a workshop on setting in erotic fiction at the last EAA conference in Las Vegas two years ago. I’m not entirely sure how one would conduct an online one, but if you’re interested, I’ll investigate.

    i am not entirely certain how an online workshop would work either. it just seems harder to find workshops that one might expect. i would love to be able to learn to write erotica, but have no idea where to begin!
    thank you so much for your repsonse!

    Hi. My social media skills are pretty terrible. I was trying to find a way to PM you and could not. I am a 35 year old male who loves your writing style and who has a few some-would-say interesting fetishes. I have a 2500 word piece which I am really happy with and I would like a second opinion. Because it is a fetish close to my heart I don’t know if others will find it as well written as I do or not. I really respect your views/writing on erotica and fetish and I would love for this to be my first blog post. I will gladly send you a draft- find me on Twitter @Try_Anthing_ To be 100% honest I created this account tonight to hopefully kickstart my erotica/fetish blogging.

      Hello Kim, I did try to message you via Twitter, but couldn’t seem to find your twitter account.

      Firstly, good luck with your blogging! Second, I will make a blog post explaining why I no longer undertake to critique erotica pieces sent to me anymore. It’s not a personal thing at all. It’s just a long-term product of my experience.

    So, I’m afraid that this might make me look a little literarily challenged, for an English student: but in this context what the hell is “a pairing”? Is it a couple of characters to work with?
