Sex and Memory Writing: 3-5pm

“Sex & Memory: Writing from Your Own Experience” is a writing workshop series with Carol Queen at the San Francisco Center for Sex & Culture, and was the inspiration for this group.

The monthly CSC newsletter says this about the group – “Did you ever have a sexual experience and say to yourself, “I absolutely HAVE to write that down”? Whether you’re documenting amazing experiences for your lover or your history for posterity, penning a soon-to-be-published memoir or hiding your secrets in a time capsule in the basement, come write and discuss getting your own sexuality and experiences into a format you can share. We’ll write together, also, if the group wishes, but for the first meeting, bring either a piece of your own writing or a piece of sexual/erotic memoir written by someone else. Future classes will include memoir-writing guest authors, too. And feel free to stay around for the Erotic Reading Circle afterwards, to read or listen!”

We’ve all had those amazing sexual experiences, the ones that just demand documentation. But we can’t all get to San Francisco every month!

The goal of this Calgary-based group is to provide that same welcoming, open, non-judgmental environment for members to share and explore together. We will be writing together, sharing our experiences, and discussing the experience of examining the life lived lusciously.

Erotic Reading Circle: 5:30-7pm

The Erotic Reading Circle was developed in the early days of Good Vibrations in San Francisco before being taken on by the Center for Sex & Culture (http://www.sexandculture.org/), where it is facilitated by Carol Queen and Jennifer Cross of Writing Ourselves Whole (http://writingourselveswhole.org/) — we are offering it here in collaboration with them.

Writers of all orientations and experience levels are welcome, and we want to hear your work! The group will provide a non-judgmental and supportive space to share your writing, both old and new, and any style of writing from poetry to memoir or fiction.

This group will be facilitated by Tiffany Sostar.

This will be a monthly group, and is open to anyone interested in writing or reading. All orientations and experience levels welcome!
