Declaring Our Erotic
A sex-positive writing group, open to LGBT/SGL/queer folks of all genders.
Eight Thursday eves, 6:00-8:30pm.
Begins June 16
Meets in downtown San Francisco, near BART and MUNI

Let's write about sex! Join us for this queer sex-positive writing workshop, a space in which we celebrate our full, complex sexualities. Each week, we write in response to exercises designed to tap into different aspects of our sexual selves: memory, fantasy, experience, relationship with the body, and more! You will get more comfortable exploring and talking about sexual desires, receive strong feedback about your new writing, explore the full breadth of our sexualities and desires in a fun and confidential environment - and, of course, try your hand at some explicit erotic writing. Previous participants have found the group to be transformative, feeling that the work they've done has opened up not only their relationship with their erotic selves, but with many other aspects of their lives as well.

No previous writing experience necessary -- Open to folks of all writing abilities! Limited to 9 writers. Spaces are limited and pre-registration is required. For more information, with fee questions and to register, write to Jen at jennifer (at) writingourselveswhole (dot) org or visit Thank you!

About your facilitator: Jen Cross is a freelance writer and educator whose writing has been published in more than thirty anthologies and periodicals, including (most recently) Visible: A femmethology (vol 1), Nobody Passes, Best Sex Writing 2008, Best Women's Erotica 2007, Best Fetish Erotica, More Five Minute Erotica, and make/shift: feminisms in motion. She tours nationwide with the Body Heat: queer femme porn tour. Jen's used erotic writing as a transformative, healing practice personally, and has led erotic writing workshops since 2002.
