Just in time for Valentine’s Day, this two-hour workshop, led by Jennifer Patiño takes participants through writing exercises and moving meditations meant to explore the way that our sensuality can fuel creativity and vice versa. We will look at a few of the different forms that comprise the erotic genre – poetry, fiction, memoir/journals, and how to’s – including texts from Latino authors in English and Spanish. We’ll create responses to these forms within the context of a fun, supportive, and LGBT friendly safe space. Through these exercises, we’ll reflect on the ways in which connecting to our bodies and desires can enhance our lives and our writing – whether we are working on an erotic novel or a sexy Valentine’s Day card.
