Workshop: The Sexy Side of Writing

Now that it’s been officially announced on Dean’s website, I can announce it here…

I’m co-teaching a week-long writing workshop for the Oregon Writers Network! Not only that, but I’m co-teaching with award-winning author (in pretty much every genre) and editor Kristine Kathryn Rusch and amazing urban fantasy author Phaedra Weldon!

OCTOBER 20-27, 2012
The Sexy Side of Writing

Everything you need to know about how to write hot, sexy fiction in any genre. Taught by three of the top writers in three different genres, this will be an intense and fun writing workshop. Instructors are Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Phaedra Weldon, and Dayle Dermatis.

Workshop fee is $650.00 and room rate is $50.00 per night.

All fall workshops start at 7PM on the first Saturday and go late on the second Saturday, with travel home on Sunday.

Full info is here.

This will be an intense writing workshop; you will get lots of practice! We’re focusing on romance, erotica, and paranormal romance/urban fantasy, but the idea is, as it says above, that you’ll learn how to write a sex scene for any genre. Intense…but it’s also going to be a blast! This will not be a workshop for prudes.

Also, like Dean says on his site, we end up talking business as well—and if you want to know what’s really going on in the world of publishing today, these are the people to talk to. (If you’re not already reading both Kris and Dean’s blogs…or even if you are!)

Feel free to ask me questions, or you can ping Dean directly (which is probably better, because he can talk more about how the workshops are run, get you signed up, etc.).

I’m…well, I’m still struggling with the “I’m not worthy” aspect of this. Kris has been one of my writing mentors for the past ten years, and to be asked to teach a workshop with her is just…gah!
