Sex, Violence and 4 Letter Language at the Muse Online Conferece (BTW, it's free)

Sex, Violence and 4 Letter Language: They Don't Have To Be Gross

Are your sex scenes porno or literature? How do you know when you've gone too far, or just written it all wrong? When does violence advance the story and character development, and when does it become a bucket of blood thrown over a story that's going nowhere? When does strong language reveal character, and when does it reveal bad writing? Sex, violence and 4 letter words can enhance your story or break it. This workshop will draw on examples from both extremes and encourage open discussion. Warning: This workshop will contain explicit content. But, hey, it will be for the advancement of art.

Registration is free and it's all online. My workshop will not be at a specific time, but will be through a forum-like discussion board (details about this will be released prior to the conference).

The conference runs October 8 - 14 and this workshop will run for the duration.
