Details

Tightrope Books presents its 5th Writing Without a Net literary workshop series: "Freeing Your Erotic Self in Poetry or Prose with Myna Wallin".

Do you feel self-conscious when you are writing sex scenes in novels? Does your love poetry lack lust(re)? The goal of this workshop is to find a vocabulary for the erotic self; writers will explore ways of describing their characters’ lives fully and unselfconsciously, in order to enhance the story or poem at hand. Exploring your sensual self in poetry or fiction can be exciting, freeing. Not only that, but by incorporating eroticism into your writing you will add a level of depth and honesty to it. In a relaxed, open, and accepting environment, all will discuss how to loosen inhibitions and will do so with various writing exercises meant to free the sensual writer within. They will look at other writers’ techniques and language and explore the variety of ways authors have expressed passion in their writing. Whether you are a poet or a prose writer, a novice or published writer, your work will undoubtedly benefit from this playful, exploratory day.

Workshop runs from 12-5 p.m and the cost is $50. Refreshments will be served.
