Description of Class
One night. One author. One focused study of the craft.
We’re pleased to welcome acclaimed author Garth Greenwell to the studio for this single-session master class on how sex can work in fiction. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to study with a master for an evening of close reading and in-depth discussion.
If sex scenes are so hard to write, as everyone seems to agree they are, why do writers keep bothering with them?
In this session, we’ll consider some of the things sex scenes can do in fiction—how they offer uniquely powerful tools for exploring character and theme. We’ll do this by considering some examples of historical and contemporary sex writing, including work by Flaubert, Lawrence, Acker, Baldwin, McCarthy, and Kim Fu.
Garth’s Master Class is a great primer for his Keynote Speech at our Second Annual Writers Festival on October 5 & 6. Get hands-on learning experience at the Studio, and then join us at the Festival for added festivities.Top
