Sign up now for this just-announced June-July class:

Tuesdays, June 6--July 25 -- Declaring Our Erotic: Announcing an erotic
writing workshop designed for anyone who's ever
thought about writing erotic stories, but felt intimidated, shy, or unsure
how to start.  In this
workshop, you will
? Get more comfortable exploring and talking about sexual desires,
? Celebrate and struggle with various and complex aspects of your sexual
self, and
? Practice explicit erotic writing!

Each week, we will write in response to exercises designed to tap into
different aspects of our erotic
experience:  memory, fantasy, fetish, desire, relationship with the body,
and so on. Open to folks of
all writing abilities: whether you write regularly, are an infrequent
journaler, or used to write and
would like to again, this workshop is for you!

The workshop will run 8 weeks starting Tuesday, June 6 at the Center for Sex
and Culture, 398 11th St. in San
Francisco. The cost is $150-$200. If you‚d like to participate, or have any
questions, please contact
Jen at I look forward to writing with

Jen Cross is a freelance writer and educator who‚s published in such
anthologies as Set in Stone, Best
Fetish Erotica, Back to Basics, and the forthcoming Naughty Spanking Stories
A-Z 2. She‚s a queer
incest survivor who used erotic writing to transform her relationship with
her erotic self. She received
her MA in Transformative Language Arts from Goddard College, and facilitates
writing workshops
(both erotic and not) using the Amherst Writers & Artists method
