The Erotic Reading Circle
Every fourth Wednesday (usually) at the Center for Sex and Culture
Wednesday, 7/23, 7:30-9:30pm
suggested donation: $5+
Since 2006, we’ve been meeting on the fourth Wednesday of the month to share and celebrate the breadth of erotic artistry in the Bay Area!
The Erotic Reading Circle meets at the Center for Sex and Culture, 1349 Mission Street, San Francisco (cross streets 9th and 10th). $5+ donation requested (no one turned away); donations support the Center for Sex and Culture. Bring whatever you’re working on, or whatever you’d like to be working on.
Come join readers and share your erotic writing! Bring something to read – please try to keep it to about ten minutes or less — or just be part of the appreciative circle of listeners. This is a great place to try out new work (ask for comments if you like), or get more comfortable reading for other people. Longtime writers will bring their latest… newly inspired writers, bring that vignette you scrawled on BART while daydreaming on your way to work. Carol Queen and Jen Cross host/facilitate this space dedicated to erotic writers and readers.
See you at the Circle!
Dirty Words: a monthly erotic writing playdate with Jen Cross
Open the gates and let your writing voice flow
A half-day erotic writing group open to all
Fourth Saturday of every month
Ever read through a sexy short story and thought, “I’d like to do that!”? In this monthly writing group, you can try your hand at some explicit erotic writing.
Come together with a fun and supportive group of writers and dive into your own sexy and surprising new writing! This group is designed to leave you more confident with sexual language, erotic expression, and your own writing practice. You’ll receive immediate and concrete feedback about what’s already working (and hot!) in your writing, and will leave with several new pieces of work.
Don’t be surprised if you find, as have previous participants, that you’re more comfortable discussing your own sexual desires after practicing writing about fictional sex! Bring your notebooks or laptops and your most open mind.
Unless otherwise noted, this group meets on the fourth Saturday of the month. Fee for this group is $25-50, sliding scale. Limited to 10 writers!
No previous writing experience necessary! Workshops held in San Francisco at the Center for Sex and Culture (1349 Mission St.); pre-registration is required — please write to email@example.com with questions or to register.
