Owning the Nasty: Writing the Personal Sex Essay (Seattle, WA)


  • Hugo House 1634 11th Avenue Seattle, WA USA (map)

Saturday, March 23 and Sunday, March 24 from 10am-5pm (1 hour lunch break)

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 and introspective 12-hour intensive at Seattle's Hugo House, writers will work to build strong connective tissue between their own sexual stories and larger questions about sex that our culture is grappling with. Participants will explore their histories through unconventional exercises and discuss the craft of authors like Cheryl Strayed, Silas Hansen, and Lidia Yuknavitch.

Member Price: $265.50     Non-member Price: $295

Registration for this class is through Hugo House and will open in a few months. Check back at this page for updates.
