How do we make meaning from our sexual experiences? What do our personal stories have to offer the world, and what is the best way to share them? In this bawdy, smart, & introspective weekend intensive in a private adobe home in Tucson’s Barrio Viejo, participants will write about their own sexual experiences. Together, we’ll mine our lives for unexpected stories, consider what authority looks like on the page, and dive into the opportunities provided by narrative distance. Beyond simply telling the narrative of what happened, we will work to build strong connective tissue between individual sexual stories and the larger questions about sex with which our culture grapples.
Participants should plan to read published essays in advance of the class dates. This class will not include workshopping, but will involve the optional sharing of work. (More information to come on a separate workshopping group and/or manuscript reading discount with Kati.)
This class is designed to be trauma-sensitive and draws on Kati’s experience as a seasoned sex writer and Certified Sexologist who has provided sexuality education to more than 8,000 people.
This class requires a minimum of 5 students and caps at 15. A deposit of half the total cost is required to hold your space, with the remainder due at the start of class. Alternate payment plans and work trades may be possible; please reach out to discuss further with Kati. Earlybird pricing expires 9/1.
