Myna Wallin will be giving a workshop on Saturday, April 16th, Freeing Your Erotic Self in Poetry or Prose.
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, to enhance the story or poem at hand. Exploring your sensual self can be exciting, freeing. How much is too much sex; how much is not enough? By incorporating just the right amount of eroticism into your writing you will add a level of depth and authenticity to your writing.
