Declaring Our Erotic - a writing workshop for all!
Eight Tuesday evenings: Spring '10 series begins April 13!
Registration now open!

Have you been thinking about exploring some new edges in your writing? Are there longings you'd like to find language for? Now's the time: Join this AWA-method sexuality writing workshop and:

* Get more comfortable exploring and talking about sexual desires,
* Receive strong and focused feedback about your new writing,
* Explore the varied and complex aspects of sexuality and desire, and, of course,
* Try your hand at some explicit erotic writing!

In addition, if you choose, you may share your manuscripts with peer writers for well-rounded response to your erotic work. In 8 weeks, you'll create an exciting body of fresh and (often) surprising new writing! No previous writing experience necessary -- Open to folks of all writing abilities!

"The chance to integrate erotica and language, out loud in community, every week, is such a human delight and relief--it can lead us to unexpected discoveries, both inside us and out there in the world." --LB, previous participant

Spaces are limited, and pre-registration is required. Open to folks of all sexualities and all genders!

Fee for 8-week session is $225-300, sliding scale. Workshops held in an accessible and BART-friendly location in downtown San Francisco. To register, call 415-608-3398 or visit!
