The market for erotic fiction and nonfiction is booming! There actually is a secret to writing great erotica - and you’ll discover just what that is in this fun, hands-on workshop with well-known erotica writer and teacher M.

Christian will review the varieties of personal and literary expression possible in this exciting and expanding field. He’ll also teach you techniques for creating love and sex scenes that sizzle.  Plus: current pay rates, how to write for a wide variety of erotic genres, where and how to submit your erotic writing, and more.

Ageless Erotica Reading and Book Celebration with Joan Price

Sun, May 5, 2013, 4 pm
  What would it look like if talented writers over age 50 wrote erotica featuring steamy, sexy characters who were also over 50? Ageless Erotica is a ground-breaking anthology of erotic short stories and memoir essays presenting women and men, couples and singles, straight and gay, who are over 50, 60, 70, and beyond – all enjoying and sharing their erotic moments. Contributors Dale Chase, Linda Poelzl, Dorothy Freed, Donna George Storey, and Susan St. Aubin join Joan Price, Ageless Erotica editor, reading excerpts and discussing the idea of “senior erotica.” Center for Sex and Culture, 1349 Mission St., San Francisco, CA (between 9th and 10th), http://www.sexandculture.org. Donation to CSC requested. Ageless Erotica and other books by these speakers will be available for sale. (Note: San Francisco parking meters are no longer free on Sunday.)
 
Joan Price calls herself an advocate for ageless sexuality. The media have called her ‘senior sexpert,’ ‘the beautiful face of senior sex,’ and – her favorite – ‘wrinkly sex kitten.’  She is the author of the award-winning Naked at Our Age: Talking Out Loud about Senior Sex and Better Than I Ever Expected: Straight Talk about Sex After Sixty. Joan conceived and edited Ageless Erotica.
