Romance stories and steamy scenes have always gone hand in hand, but spicy reads have exploded in popularity over the last few years. So, how do you get down and dirty without sacrificing story and character?

This workshop will explore the craft considerations of incorporating smut into your love stories. We’ll look at the commonalities between literary sex scenes and their less salacious cousin, action scenes, and examine the role of explicit sex in developing your characters and their relationships. We’ll also share tips and tricks for the best ways to build steam and get spicy.

With sample texts, lively discussion, and plenty of exercises, participants will discover that sex scenes can play an integral role in crafting great romance.
