I can now happily announce that ERWA (the Erotica Readers and Writers Association) blog is planning huge changes.
For those of you who aren’t aware, ERWA is really the single most important erotic writers’ group on the internet. It’s public face has consisted of a website that featured, on a monthly basis, some of the best new erotica writing being produced. It also houses a treasury of extremely good resources for budding erotica writers. However, a significant amount of ERWA’s most important work has gone on behind closed doors. It runs one of the best writing / workshoping / critiquing mail serves out there. But you have to join the group to participate and their mailing list protocol is a little archaic and fiddly.
Apart from its web presence, ERWA has had a blog for some time. One of its best features is its very current and extensive Calls for Submissions posts. If you have a hankering to publish your work, this is one of the best kept secrets on the web.
But I’m thrilled to announce that as of the beginning of 2012, the ERWA blog will be hosting bi-weekly blog posts by erotica writers. Taking a look at the line-up, the list includes some of the heaviest hitters in the genre. Ashley Lister, M. Christian, Craig Sorensen, Donna George Storey, Lisabet Sarai, Kathleen Bradean, Lucy Felthouse and Kristina Wright.
I was honoured to be invited to join that list. I’m so thrilled to rub literary shoulders with these people. They kick serious, heavyweight ass when it comes to writing on the wild side. It was the most wonderful Christmas present any erotica writer could receive.
Please join me at the ERWA blog monthly at http://erotica-readers.blogspot.com/. Check out all the posts and when each of the writers is scheduled to appear. My posts are scheduled for the 13th of every month. I can’t wait to hit a Friday. You just KNOW I’m going blog about the nasty stuff.
