Tomorrow! I’ll be teaching a writing workshop in Baltimore about sex.

Steamy: How to Write About Sex
To write about sex well you need the boldness to command and describe the dirty and oh so delicious acts we humans explore, and the basic writing skills of plot, setting, and character. In this pen-to-paper writing workshop we’ll look at some examples of extremely successful and unsuccessful erotica, steamy love letters for your sweetheart, how to step up your blog to the next level, where to submit your work for publication in the erotica world, and some quick basics for editing your work. Bring a paper and writing utensil, we will be doing writing exercises.

Tuesday, September 13th, 6:30pm
Buy tickets in advance on BrownPaperTickets
Sugar is at 927 West 36th Street on the Avenue in Hampden Baltimore, MD

Any recommendations for a good vegetarian cafe to eat dinner at beforehand? Any other must-see places in Baltimore I should check out? I’ll only be there for the day, but I’m excited.

    Just when I move out of Baltimore …

    I’d recommend the Golden West Cafe. It’s just up the street from Sugar.

    I’m kinda addicted to the Dinner Polenta at Golden West in Hampden. They have a lot of different vegan/vegetarian friendly options, if memory serves me right.

    Try Rocket to Venus – it’s a great place with decent veggie food a few blocks away. :) Can’t wait to meet you in person!
