Our Most Basic Instinct: How to Write about Sex

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Why do even the best writers stall, stumble and fall when it comes to writing about issues of a sensual or sexual nature? How do you balance passion with plot, perspective and pace? Is less always more? Update your writing tool kit with these basics and be better prepared than the professional writers.


  • Walking the writer’s tightrope – how to satisfy the reading/viewing needs of your audience, the dramatic arc of your character (if there is one) and your own needs as a writer.
  • A chance to hear some new ‘hot off the press’ writing.

By the end of this course, students should be able to:

  1. Feel more confident about writing and including sensual and sexual aspects in their manuscripts.
  2. Access proofreaders, editors and publishers more easily.
