Raw Silk - Saturday Intensive!
September 26th from 11-4

An erotic writing retreat open to all women, just in time for Folsom Street naughtiness!

Leather folks are highly encouraged to come! (You know what we mean...)

Check-in and registration/continental breakfast 10:30-11:00am; Light lunch also provided.

For this Saturday writing retreat, we'll gather in the morning for coffee and some home-baked breakfast, and then write through the rest of the morning. After a break for a light lunch, we keep on diving deep into our work through the afternoon! At the end of the day, we have some conversation about revising and editing our work, and we close by four -- plenty of time to get out and thoroughly enjoy your pre-Folsom Saturday night!

As for all the other writing groups, we will be using the Amherst Writers and Artists workshop method. You'll leave with: a rich body of new erotic writing; feedback from your peers about what's already strong in your new writing; and some thoughts about revising your new work.

All workshops held in an accessible, downtown San Francisco office, near Powell Street and Market - close to Bart & Muni.

Spaces are limited to 9 participants, and pre-registration is required.

Fee is $100.

To register, email: jennifer [at]
