“Writing Great Sex Scenes” Workshop

MAY 1-31, 2019

Bad sex writing is so widespread among writers that there’s an award for the worst examples of the year. Even acclaimed authors can find themselves singled out for the prize. “Writing Great Sex Scenes” will help you explore the pitfalls of writing about sex by studying a variety of scenes, both good and bad.

You’ll have weekly lessons and writing exercises whose goal is producing a scene you can be proud of. Think of this workshop as doing an independent study: I’ll work with each participant individually via email. You’ll send me your writing as a Microsoft Word file attached to your email which I will edit and comment on, and return to you. Before the workshop begins, we’ll speak on the phone about your goals for the workshop.

I’ve taught numerous workshops about how to avoid the traps in writing about sex in your fiction, and the Los Angeles Times praised one of my books by saying “The sex scenes sweat with passion.”

“Writing Great Sex Scenes” runs from May 1-31, 2019 and enrollment is limited to ten participants. To enroll you need to register and pay the workshop fee of $250 (plus an $8 processing fee). Fees are not refundable, but you can apply them to a future workshop if you find you’re unable to participate after registering.

Please note: You must be 18 or over to register for this workshop.
