PRESENTER: Laura Pritchett
Friday, May 5, 4:30-5:30

Sex is not always good, but it’s always revealing! Whether it’s fantastic, boring, strange, or predictable, sex is one of the most powerful unions and sensations we experience, and it shouldn’t be skipped or avoided in writing. On the other hand, a sex scene shouldn’t be included unless it serves a purpose, which is to illustrate the characters and the larger themes of the work. We’re not talking about porn, and we’re not talking about Hallmarky stuff--we’re talking about the real stuff. To that end, this session will explore how to direct an honest gaze at this most fascinating activity and write sex scenes well.
