Taught by Madeline Stevens, a writer based in New York City. Her novel Devotion is out now in the US, UK, France, Portugal, Germany and Mexico. The book has been described as “Slick and sexy” by Harper’s Bazaar.
Join Madeline for a three-hour generative workshop where you will examine the craft of sex scenes in literature, from the rapturous to the uncomfortable.
Writers of all levels and genres are encouraged to enroll. This is not an erotica-focused workshop, but rather an examination of how to insert successful sex scenes into any type of fiction.
We will read and discuss published scenes by writers such as Deesha Philyaw, J.G. Ballard, Casey Plett, and more, before moving on to write together.
Expect to leave this workshop with at least one short scene, light feedback, and a handful of tips and prompts.
Must be 18+ and comfortable with LGBTQ+ themes.
IN THIS WORKSHOP YOU WILL:
- Learn how to write from within your character’s body with a focus on sensory detail and the use of setting to convey character mood.
- Study the way pacing creates tension.
- Balance when to be explicit vs. when to hold back
- Craft your own sex scene (or two!) and receive verbal feedback if you’re bold enough to share!
You can pay for the course in full or use Shop Pay or Affirm to pay over time with equal Monthly Payments. Both options are available at checkout.
Class is on Saturday, May 13th, 2023, via Zoom 12PM ET - 3PM ET / 9AM PT - 12PM PT
