Eros in Action: writing convincing sex - 1 day workshop

Writing sex convincingly isn’t easy. Writers face a number of personal and craft challenges if they are to bring together the right elements to make a sexual scene work. Participants in this day workshop (or series of workshops) will discover the spirit of Eros, the four elements of a good sex scene and uncover the secret to incorporating sex appropriately into a narrative.

Praise for Eros in Action

“Sensational class. Very informative and practical. Keep bringing Kate Belle back. I felt inspired to keep writing and seek publication.”

“Good overarching view of Erotic Writing – very practical, clear, wide-ranging, lots of notes.”

“Thank you for a fantastic course today. I came away with some very practical methods to apply to the piece I wrote.”

Romancing the Page

Aside from being a strong genre on its own, romance is an intrinsic part in many books of almost every genre. This course explores the diversity and breadth of romance as a genre, its tropes, styles, and reader and publisher expectations. Participants learn the art of story and the basics of writing craft, then build a solid foundation for the plot of their romantic story with fully rounded characters engaged in believable conflict.
