Course Description

This course will explore erotic writing as a life-affirming practice. The activities in the course are designed for women who are new to writing, as well as for experienced writers who are new to erotica. We will draw on memory and imagination to write about the creative energy of older women. Each class will begin with a warm-up, often a game like limerick writing. In each session we will use a structured activity to develop a particular story element (character, plot, dialogue, etc.). We will also consult the existing canon of late-life erotica for inspiration. We will develop a shared approach to giving each other positive feedback and encouragement for these first drafts. Classes will include time when those who wish to do so may read their work to one another. In subsequent sessions, participants will integrate their story elements. By the end of the course, each participant can expect to have developed at least one full-length story that celebrates this vivid aspect of her life. | Facilitated discussion; Active participation; Writing
