Here’s what some folks have said about these workshops:

Magic happens here, that’s the thing. We explore the politics of desire in the most amazing ways. Jen’s workshops are good nourishment for the soul and creativity, as well as really empowering and FUN!!! Go toward the fun….. — Cayenne

The chance to integrate erotica and language, out loud in community, every week, is such a human delight and relief–it can lead us to unexpected discoveries, both inside us and out there in the world. –LB

Interested? Or know someone else who might be? Send me a note at jennifer@writingourselveswhole.org, and I can tell you whatever you’d like to know about how to get some more erotic writing into your week days.

This March, join us for one of our weekend intensive writing days!

Announcing weekend-day workshops this March – Reserve your space now!


Want to get a feel for how the workshops run before committing to a full 8-week session? Not able to join to a full 8-week workshop session? Want the opportunity to go a little deeper into the writing that you’ve gotten started on your own, or during regular workshop meetings?

Here’s your chance!

Join us for a day of good writing, good food and great company! The March dates are:

  • Saturday, March 22: Declaring Our Erotic: open to folks of all genders and orientations!
  • Saturday, March 29: Raw Silk-Women write desire: open to all women
  • Sunday, March 30: Write Whole-Survivors Write: for women survivors of sexual trauma
  • I’ll provide breakfast and light snacks for the day. As for all the other writing groups, we will be using the Amherst Writers and Artists workshop method. You’ll leave with: a rich body of new creative writing; feedback from your peers about what’s already strong in your new writing; and some thoughts about revising your new work.

    Each retreat day runs 10:00am-4:00pm (Breakfast 9:30-10:00am). The cost will be $100; sliding scale may be available. All workshop meetings held in our convenient Flood Building office, right off the Powell Street BART stop. Contact me (jennifer (at) writingourselveswhole (dot) org) with questions or to reserve a space!

    Reminder: All identities (i.e., women, survivor) are to be self-defined!
