Led by experienced sex columnist and award-winning journalist Ana P. Santos, this one-hour seminar will help you discover your personal voice and guide you to writing about sex authentically and creatively. Whether you’re working on a memoir, an article or a book, this class will help you write prose that readers can connect with on a profound emotional level. Ana will share her insights gained over years of exploring desire and its intricate role in shaping our beliefs and our lives. Students in the class will analyze writing samples from a variety of different genres of literary sex writing. Together, the class will explore how words can communicate intimacy and desire, and discuss how to weave in messages of sensitivity and self-empowerment when writing about the taboo topic of sex.
